Is there any software for windows that can enhance scanned handwritten (black&white) documents (jpegs) for better readability.

I am looking for a software that can do this automatically to a bulk of photos.

What tools have you tried that did not achieve your goals. Your requirements are sort of broad free and the ability to do bulk photos automatically ( any automatic work on photos dealing withthe clarity of the image is work I wouldn't trust ). –  Ramhound Sep 20 '13 at 11:38
