Subject: Scanning software for Macs

I know of two software scanning packages for the Mac,
Omnipage (Caere, Inc., Mountain View, CA), and Accutext
(Kurzweil, Cambridge, MA). Omnipage has an English-language
version and is supposed to announce the foreign-language
version in March. Accutext is in beta test for the English
language version and is supposed to have a foreign language
version 3d quarter 89.

I have seen both packages demonstrated at trade shows, with
about 97-99% accuracy.
