Unfortunately, implements everything to do with OCR... except the
important part. :) (Try our new OCR application! To make it run, all you
have to do is write your own OCR engine!) :P

This task is not easy for a lot of humans. No surprise that it's hard
for machines that don't even understand spoken language. (Code that
transcribes music notation from a recording would be even more difficult
and even more spectacular - but of course has nothing to do with Emacs,
except in the sense that Emacs has something to do with nearly
everything.) :)
