what means very good success? You had to proof read it at the end - time

simpler than the general OCR problem; he's got the actual correct pixels
(rather than a scan), and maybe even have knowledge of what fonts are

I doubt it - really! Let me know at the end. I am curious.


Does your repo have cuneiform? I found that cuneiform works LOTS better than tesseract. (You can find cuneiform in the rpmfind app, and convert it with alien if you can't find a deb version.)
