ScanTailors >> Automatic correction applied.:

Here, are the results by applying OCR with Finereader (wine).:

After Dewarping page. (The results are Amazingly good :o ):

-----------------------

I wonder if we can get this "Dewarping page image effect" with gimp or another linux tool :?:

not sure if any software suite with a GUI exists for text scans. However, the standard
image manipulation toolsets used in computer vision can probably do all of these things.
For example, in openCV you can preprocess images using things like background subtraction,
noise reduction with various kernels, morphological manipulations and so on before you pass
it to the OCR.

I have been using gscan2pdf recently but have not really tested the OCR side of it too much but it is a GUI which might be worth looking at.
