gImageReader is a simple Gtk/Qt front-end to tesseract-ocr.



  • Import PDF documents and images from disk, scanning devices, clipboard and screenshots
  • Process multiple images and documents in one go
  • Manual or automatic recognition area definition
  • Recognize to plain text or to hOCR documents
  • Recognized text displayed directly next to the image
  • Post-process the recognized text, including spellchecking
  • Generate PDF documents from hOCR documents



The steps for compiling gImageReader from source are documented in the wiki.
