Paperwork is an open-source OCR and Scanner

What is Paperwork?

Paperwork is a personal document manager. It manages scanned documents and PDFs.

It's designed to be easy and fast to use. The idea behind Paperwork is "scan & forget": You can just scan a new document and forget about it until the day you need it again.

In other words, let the machine do most of the work for you.
