    A somewhat neglected but extremely useful topic: A review of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software for Linux, focusing on Tesseract, with emphasis on image conversion, indexed TIF/TIFF and alpha channel (transparency) removal prework, plus real-life scenarios, including rotated images and several font and background types. Enjoy.
