This announce is very, very important.
Visilab will release the next version of Nanodesktop (0.3.3) in few hours.
This new version will add new things, as the native support for custom

button "Start Scan" and the GOCR engine will start and it will print the
text that has been recognized on the screen.
For optimizations, see the documentation of GNU OCR.
