Yes, definitely Qiqqa should be able to take this in its stride:     Thmbsup

Looking back over this thread, I wonder has anyone done a review of Qiqqa?
I don't think so, but I have been thinking of doing a proper Mini-Review, having used Qiqqa for a few months now. It's a superb document and information/reference management system.

Microsoft OneNote is also very good for automatically OCRing scanned images loaded into it (if you have that feature switched on). The text in any image immediately becomes searchable. A brilliant piece of software.    Thmbsup

Scan them to .PDF.
Qiqqa can OCR them and make them searchable. I think you will then be able to copy the data from the OCRed documents.

You drive the scanner with your usual scanned drivers - i.e., not Qiqqa.
Screenshot Captor can acquire images from your scanner also.

I don't know if possible. In this case is forms recognition and data capture. But not all data. Selected fields to go into a database (txt, xml, csv, access, dbf,.....)

Can Create Qiqqa associated txt, xml, csv from a file selecting ICR ?

It might not work to your satisfaction (YMMV).
I suggest you take the "suck-it-and-see" approach: install Qiqqa, read the Help documentation, and try it out for yourself.
I always find that to be a most pragmatic and useful approach.
