I came across an advertisement for FineReader 6 which seems to be the best
OCR program currently available?
I downloaded the trial version and checked it out on a quite bad photocopy
of Tischendorf's Vaticanus text. The outcome was really good (compared to
earlier tests)! A text with two pages gave an error roughly every six lines.
This is worth checking.
Unfortunately I don't have the time to scan full texts atm. :-)

Here you can download the trial version (15 hours):

For Greek you have to download also the additional Greek language file.
