Linguistic LingField(s):  Computational Linguistics

Query:   After searching the Linguist archives, I see that this is a query that
has come up a number of times before, although only one answer (over 2
years ago) was ever posted, so I will ask again (and I *will* post a
summary):

Does anyone know of usefully-trainable OCR software for the Mac? By
this I mean software that can be trained to recognize (and remember) a
sufficient number of non-standard characters to be of use to a
linguist scanning texts written in an IPA-based orthography.

Thanks in advance.
