Can anybody recommend a free OCR programme?

Thanks.

Plenty available, but I was looking for a recommendation?

abbyy is ok, did you not get a free one with your printer/scanner software

Yes, I got Iris.

Unfortunately it's embedded (HP software) with no way to select it, and with no options, so everything with text gets processed the way HP thinks it should!

Consequently I have uninstalled it.

I used to have very old copies of Textbridge and Omnipage, but the cost of current versions to run with Win 7 is prohibitive just for the odd personal document.

perhaps someone might have a free ocr in a computer mag disc they could send you.

If it is only for the occassional document, online OCR services are OK.

Is 'Narrator' any good?

All Programs/Accessories/Ease of Access.

Surely Narrator converts text to speech?
