The tests identified Scansoft OmniPage 15 as the package most suited to the project requirement. This report describes how we tested different Optical Character Recognition (OCR) packages for use on borehole scans. ScanSoft OmniPage 15, ABBYY FineReader 8, Readiris Pro 10 and TextBridge Pro 11, were analysed against certain criteria to determine which one would be more beneficial by increasing the speed of borehole data entry.
