Kooka

Kooka

Kooka is an intuitive, easy to use open source scan and Optical Character Recogniton (OCR) suite.

Kooka has been the scan application of choice for the KDE project and is an official part of the KDE Graphics Package. However, Kooka has been dropped from KDE 4.

Kooka helps you to handle the most important scan parameters, find the correct image file format to save and manage your scanned images. It offers support for different OCR modules. Libkscan,a separate element of Kooka, provides a scan service for easy and consistent use to all KDE applications.

Character recognition is provided by the built-in text recognition program gocr.
