|Any decent Delphi OCR components out there?|

Probably depends on what you want to do. I looked into this several
years ago...if you just want to accept (import) a scan then you could
use one of the many TWAIN drivers available for Delphi. But if you
wish to stay in VCL (or OCX) and then OCR then you will have to use go
with one of the more expensive graphics libraries like ImageLib,
Pegasus, or Lead Tools. Maybe somewhere on the TWAIN component trail
you could find an inexpensiveOCR solution, but I never did.
Other ideas would include getting the SDK for Scansoft's Textbridge or
OmniPro and letting whatever comes with the scanner do the job and
then grabbing the output back into your app through whatever callback
routine they use. Guess the right way to do this would be with COM or
COM+, but I'm not the guy toask about this one.
Uhh - just remembered - http://www.intervalsoftware.com has the
Envision graphics lib for under $100 and I believe it has some type of
OCR interface or capabilities. Never tried it.

MCM Design http://www.mcm-design.dk/index.php also have a toolkit for
scanning and OCR.
I use the scanning part, but not the OCR, so I can not say how and if

decent ocr engines are:
Iris has delphi support via activex, but works together with leadtools for
scan jobs. You can also compile c or c++ dlls and use it with delphi. We
have developed decent archiving solution with dbisam, iris ocr and
leadtools; performs great.
