    I have got a label which has got bar codes and text informations I
    can read the bar codes thru bar code scanner. But I want to read the
    text informations in the label too. Can any one suggest not so costly
    method of doing this. I know we can use image scanners.

    Any crazy ideas ..pls share.

    I am trying to implement a label verification equipment.

  2. My Canon flatbed scanner came with text reading software.
    I guess you could parse the generated tiff for barcodes too.
    Bit slow though.
    And only works for flat labels.

    If you do it right, you get the proper tool to start with:*-*-OCR
