Registered by Marten de Vries

An idea from Cumulus007: just scan your lesson book, and let OT generate a word list from it via OCR.

Whiteboard

Basically works now. It doesn't have actual scanning software integrated but just uses already scanned image files. That's probably good enough... Depends on tesseract, which can be installed on Ubuntu and probably other linux distro's with one command. For Windows, maybe we can ship the portable version of it inside our installer? For Mac: no idea. Maybe just not offering it is OK, then the whole thing just isn't enabled. (http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/downloads/detail?name=tesseract-ocr-3.02-win32-portable.zip&can=2&q= e.g.)
