Using XSane, I figured out how to scan some text and OCR it, but the results are very poor. Even after adjusting the scan for the best possible contrast, the highly readable scan image is rendered in text with many misspellings and missed letters.

The best results are in the 200-300dpi resolution range. Higher resolution actually makes the results poorer. What am I missing?

Is there a better tool?

Thanks.
