I haven't tried this yet. I just downloaded it and ran the short demo. It has a neat
demo (3 different durations to select from... the longest being 9 minutes, iirc).
I finally got the short one to run and it's interesting. It shows how to convert
cursory handwriting into text and it includes graphics.

The following is from the site.

I've used SimpleOCR intermittently for a few months now. It will do a
pretty fair job of converting scanned materials. It does take a little
getting used to though. I'm using it with a Cannon FB 6200 USB scanner.
I'd say that that I'm about 90% satisfied with the program.
