    1. I wonder how well this is supported by web browsers? Especially text-mode ones like lynx, links, w3m, etc.

      Also the downside of that is that Serendipity will not be able to index the text for searching. Though I wonder if Google would be able to.

    1. I tried gocr and tesseract-ocr. Neither could make much more out of this than gibberish. Ocropus isn’t in Debian, so I didn’t have the time to try it. I hope that Clara’s trainable engine might be able to help me out though.

    I’m old enough to remember the transition from typewriters to word processors. I remember typewriters as awkward and unforgiving.
