Projects / Kooka


Kooka, part of the kdegraphics package, is a raster image scan program which supports OCR. It is based on the scanner access library SANE. It supports scanning in different modes and resolutions, preview, scan area selection, and an image save assistant which features a gallery organised in a treeview with a comfortable image viewer and thumbnail support. OCR is supported through GOCR, an open source project. Kooka uses the libkscan, which offers scanner support to all KDE applications.
