Two New Tools

Online OCR - http://www.onlineocr.net/

Do you ever have a scanned document that you would like to manipulate? Your solution has arrived. Online OCR offers a free, high-quality solution. Users can simply upload an image (JPG, JPEG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, and non-editable PDF are all accepted), then choose the language and preferred output format. At the free level, the service will convert 14 images per hour, but those who are satisfied with the service and require more frequent conversion may purchase a membership.

WordTalk - http://www.wordtalk.org.uk/Home/

Need to meet accessibility standards? The WordTalk plugin works with Microsoft Word to create an audio version of text documents. The plugin speaks the text of the document and highlights it along the way. It also contains a talking dictionary so that users can decide which word spelling is most appropriate. This version is compatible with all computers running Microsoft Word.
