I have built ch-tesseract-2.01-OCR-en.sfs, an english version of tesseract. Tesseract_OCR is placed on the right click menu. If you right click on a .tif file it will produce a text file with the same name in a few seconds. However it is very fussy about these .tif files. You may have to open them in mtpaint or another graphics program and resave them. Even the training files required this. After that, however, it seems to work very well.
I have also placed a menu item on the Documents menu which opens a text file with these same instructions.
Packages for other major languages are available and can be easily built.
Let me know how it works for you. J
Hi jrb - do you perchance still have a copy of this sfs? I would like to get basic OCR functional in Slacko 5.6
