This is what I came across in a mail to SayEverything about TopOCR:

TopOCR

While travelling we often stumble on a good newspaper or magazine article. 
If you find one such piece interesting and desire to take a copy of it, the 
best option these days is to take a snapshot of it with your mobile camera.

In this regard, the mobile phone camera acts as a scanner. Now, if you wish 
to convert this camera text image into normal editable text, the software 
TopOCR (http://www.topocr.com/) could come in handy. This free software lets 
you easily convert any text image into a normal text file - you just need to 
make it accessible to TopOCR. When you start TopOCR, it displays two windows 
side-by-side - one for the image file and other for the OCR text output. 
Once you are satisfied with the text output, TopOCR allows you to save it as 
a PDF or HTML file. In addition, using the program's text-to-speech feature 
one can convert the OCR text output to an MP3 audio file. Of course, this 
feature can be used to create audio from any text file - just load the text 
file into the TopOCR text window and press the TexToSpeech button.
