	I am trying to identify OCR software that specifically caters for
scientific, engineering and other technical special requirements. 

	In particular I'm interested in software that:

	[1]	allows bulk additions to the program's dictionary to allow the
		rapid inclusion of specialist vocabularies;

	[2}	provides drop down boxes of user-selected special characters to permit
		immediate entry of both special symbols and characters commonly used
		in scientific and technical disciplines, eg, the superscript symbol to
		denote degrees of temperature.

	If anyone has experience of this type of data or information capture I'd be
very pleased to receive e-mails.
