OCR (optical character recognition) with word search?

(1/2) > >>

gotLL:
Hello all,
I'm wondering if there is any application - whether GUI or Terminal which can scan text in the form of an image - and while doing so search for a specific string.  On OCR with built in word search.   

Is any such thing available?

Sincere thanks
dw

Thank you!
I installed gimageReader - and when I go into Synaptics it shows that it is installed.
But it does not appear on any of my GUI application list and I cannot initiate it via the terminal either
when I try gimageReader in the terminal - I get "command not found".

trinidad:
Tesseract is the CLI application which is probably the most commonly used for ocr. Synaptic has the cli version and the language packs, or you can try the full Debian package below. The second link is to a help manual. It's been around for about 25 years.
