[colug-432] XSane + OCR

I am trying to figure out how to get Xsane to work with OCR on my laptop
with Xubuntu 14.04 LTS and my Card Scan 800c + HP Officejet Pro 8610.
Both work to scan properly with images. But I am looking for an OCR
solution to more easily import business card contacts to my own CarDAV
server. Anyone know how I may be able to get Xsane to work with OCR
nicely? I was looking at Tesseract, but am open to options as long as
they work. Would prefer a GUI solution, but will accept CLI solutions if
it is easy, and can be somewhat scripted.

Best Regards,

Alon Ganon
