Chapter 1. Introduction

Kooka is an application that provides access to scanner hardware using the SANE library. Therefore, the SANE package must be installed to use Kooka.

Kooka allows you to scan, save and view in any image format that Qt™ supports.

Character recognition is also provided by using the open source GOCR or OCRAD programs, or the commercial KADMOS library. You have to install at least one of these software packages to use this functionality. After character recognition is complete, a spellcheck is automatically started for the recognized material. You can edit the content in the OCR window and export it as plain text.
