You are better concentrating on a good scanner, the software are only lite versions anyway. You can update that buy buying better software later if you find you need it. I have a Epson Perfection 1250 with decent scan software

woodchip has said it.....I only emphasize

The scanner is what matters a good one for scanning coloured printing.......A less good will still be enough for OCR.

The software is usually bundled with the scanner, but like most such software, it will start you off and then you might dip in your pocket later when it is more likely you know what your need is.
