My Favorite Tutorials On using OCR Apps and Software

This whole month has been about researching OCR (Optical Character Recognition).  I have a student on my caseload who relies on OCR to read her textbooks.  Myself and the other AT specialist have researched everything about OCR this month to help this student increase her efficiency and scanning.  Anyway,  I wanted to share a few of the most helpful tutorials about the latest OCR technology out there.  If you are a history buff like me, you can read about the history of OCR here.
