Emacs doesn’t actually _perform_ OCR -- nor would I ever imagine it doing so (that’s image-processing, not text processing). However, there is a major mode dedicated to editing OCR texts -- Emacs-assisted proofreading, if you will: ocr-mode
Useful if you, say, happen to have access to a high-speed book-scanner and enterprise-grade OCR software. cough cough.
