10.6: How to use OCR with HP multi-function printers
Authored by: onkelringelhuth on Feb 18, '10 09:36:40AM

Works like a champ. And in French and German, after I'd downloaded the dictionaries from Google Code. HP not required: I used it with TIFF output obtained from a Canon scanner using Image Capture. It's not entirely house-trained: give it a file name it does not like, and it crashes. Maybe I should be a good citizen and submit a patch...

Can't say for sure if it needs Snow Leopard, but a glance at the code suggests it should be pretty portable. (In particular, it doesn't use threads, which would make it faster on modern Macs. Not that it's a slouch anyway.)
