OCR Terminal’s free, Web-based Optical Character Recognition service lets you turn scanned images into fully searchable text files.

You upload the file; OCR Terminal extracts the text without altering its formatting or layout. The results can be downloaded or e-mailed in any of four formats: rtf, txt, doc, or xml. If your fingers are cramped from retyping PDFs into Word files, it’s a godsend.
