I need to perform OCR on the a backend of a website on a Linux machine with printed text.

I read the other related questions here, so I tried tesseract, wich is considered as one of the most accurate amongst the open source ones, but it was very inaccurate for me.

I also heard about ABBYY, wich is told to be very accurate, but it's extremly expensive. 3500€ for a usage-limited license is way too much for me.

So, here are my requirements:

  • I need to be able to work on Linux with the command line.
  • I need to recognize hungarian languaged documents.
  • I do not want to spend more than 1-2k € for a licence with unlimited usage on one machine.

What exactly are you trying to OCR, printed text? handwriting? –  ewanm89 Aug 26 '12 at 12:01
