OCRKit (http://ocrkit.com/), a text recognition app for Mac O X 10.4 or higher, has been updated to version 1.1. The new version adds support for new OCR languages: Polish, Russian, Turkish.

There’s also control for color detection. Additionally, version 1.1 improves automatic color detection and the embedding of certain image files.

OCRKKit comes with support for several OCR languages, including English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish, and even more user-interface translations: English, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Simplified-Chinese and Traditional-Chinese. It’s designed for Intel Macs only.

OCRKit costs approximately US$56, though version 1.1. is a free update for registered users. A demo is available for download.
