SimpleOCR is a proprietary optical character recognition application developed originally by Cyril Cambien of France under the title WOCAR (until v2.5 in 2001). It converts black and white scans or TIFF images to editable text files or Microsoft Word documents.

Version 3.1, reviewed in PC Magazine in 2004,[1] is the current version as of September 2009. It can read documents in English and French, but cannot recognise accented characters used only in other languages.[2]
