comment How to stop OS X from switching input method (keyboard layout) automatically?
Actually it appears to have both. Single global setting and setting per app. The problem lies in the fact that once you set it to a language which is not supported by all apps, then it will switch to the other one. It sucks, seriously.

I tried topOCR with another doc and it is useless. Tildas and stuff all over the place [this was from a doc scanned at 600dpi]. Also I am undergoing the pain of switching from windows to mac and topocr is windows only.

When I switch to an app that does not support the "British - Microsoft" setting i.e. automatically assumes "Swiss German", it appears to switch it for ALL applications. I don't understand why not all applications support 'another' language and I also don't understand why this forces the other applications to pick up the change.

Have also just noticed that for some applications, it is not even possible to select "British - Microsoft" e.g. Preview, QuickTimeplayer. Other applications like firefox and itunes work fine (although they do still keep switching back to swiss german)

Naah. zamzar is useless at recognising spaces even at 600 dpi, will try another tool for conversion.

Looks nice, but I don't really want to have to pull my camera out when I want to scan a doc. I can see how that might be nice if you do not have a scanner or are out and about with your phone though.
