I recently got Universal OCR from LanguageForce (www.languageforce.com) for
free off the SurplusAuction.  It claims to do 33 languages including Greek
and Hebrew, which appears to mean diacritics & vowels as well (?), be
teachable, etc.  I've not had time to try it out yet, with trying to get
some new updates to the Morphs done; has anyone else tried this package ??
