johnnyboy: I clicked on your link Terrie and under the "FreeOCR software" there were 3 options. I picked the first which was "SimpleOCR". There was no link for "FreeOCR".
That is very strange because the link in my post is for the download page for software I'm using (FreeOCR).

The link in my first post for FreeOCR is to paperfile.net:
http://www.paperfile.net/

and I've attached a screen shot of what the page should look like...


I'm guessing that the page where you are seeing SimpleOCR might be http://www.freeocr.net/ which lists a number of different versions of free OCR software. It was on that page that I found the dowload link for the software I'm using (FreeOCR) which, as I noted above, is on paperfile.net. SimpleOCR is the last option on that freeocr.net page--it is a bit confusing as the software I'm using (FreeOCR) has the same name as the url that lists the various ocr software versions...'-}}

If I'm remembering correctly, I did a bit of research/browsing on the other OCR software listed on the freeocr.net page and FreeOCR was rated better which is why I tried it...

If for some reason you can't get at the FreeOCR download page I listed above ( paperfile.net ), let me know and I can email you FreeOCR as it's a very small file--157kb..
