The mission for the 39th session of Weekend Testing was:

Compare the following image to text converters:

http://www.free-ocr.com/
http://www.onlineocr.net/default.aspx
https://docs.google.com/DocAction?action=updoc&hl=en

by:

1)file size capability
2)speed of conversion
3)quality of conversion (defined by the tester)
4)find other aspects that can be a relevant metric and point out the observations

The participants had first approximately 1h to get familiar with the mission and use the applications. Michael had the idea to share his results real time for others to compare.

In the debriefing(1h like the first half) , Markus presented his findings in this format.

Most of the early joiners had the opportunity to try all of the OCRs, although with a limited number of image types.
