The TopOCR download file size is 150 MB due to the inclusion of the neural net data files for all eleven supported languages as well as the Neural Warp neural net data file. If you have a previous version of this software installed on your PC, it is recommended that you must first un-install the old version before you install this version.
TopOCR Demo Limitations
Unlike most shareware trial packages, the TopOCR Demo does not work within a fixed time period, for instance 30 days, or a fixed number of uses.
The TopOCR Demo will work indefinitely and process an indefinite number of images.
However, in the standard GUI mode all of the OCR text output save functions are disabled as well as the Text To Speech functions.
