OCR software

Recommendations please friends.

Have installed a new PC for a friend (OS is Windows XP Home). Tried installing his HP Officejet 700, but needed new drivers etc. Downloaded the software from HP, and installed it ok. However, OCR greyed out. Checked HP FAQs to be told integrated OCR not available in XP upgrade, and that we need purchase a Windows XP compatible OCR program.

Being cost-conscious, I would appreciate advice on a suitable bit of software.

Try Simple OCR from click here it is a free download. I have it on my PC though I use ME it is supposed to work fine with XP also.
