        @nitinkhanna It even does decent on skewed text. Now try translating text, or removing text from an image with it. Don't forget to pick up your jaw off the floor.

                @crow74 It's rather amazing. Nicer than the CSS integration in Photoshop, even.

                    @nhk Kindle for Mac is horrible. Use the Cloud Reader (though I don't think it has personal docs either)

                          @pme Yup. It's a bit more hit-and-miss than paid OCR apps, but still quite good.
