             Subject: OCR for 17th century Latin texts?

    I am searching for an OCR program that can deal with works in Latin
    printed in the seventeenth century. I would also be interested in any
    systematic tests that have been done to rate the success different OCR
    programs on comparable materials.
    Best wishes,
    Michael John Gorman
