I haven't used Text Cloner for a long time.
When I did, it was inferior to programs like Openbook, Kurzweil, Fine Reader,
etc. But there is a demo and if you try it with a sample of the kinds of
material you will be scanning, you will get a good comparison.

Hmmm what is text cloner like and is it more accessible than abbyy.
I like abbyy for what it is and use it a bunch, however, half price for
upgrades is still high.
My version will run on win10 nicer than my old 14 does, and I have emailed
them about a few issues but future things are always nice.

Let me know if you need any more info.
How old is your OCR program and how well does it
work currently? I haven't followed this for many years but for a good
while, I found that upgrades may have improved marginal scanning situations
but that much of the time, for most scanning under good conditions, the
upgrades made little or no difference.
Or are you upgrading because what you were using
doesn't run in Windows 10, which is unlikely?
