Ocrad is an optical character recognition program, developed as part of the GNU Project. Based on a feature extraction method, it reads images in portable pixmap formats and produces text in byte (8-bit) or UTF-8 formats. Also included is a layout analyzer, able to separate the columns or blocks of text normally found on printed pages. Ocrad can be used as a stand-alone command-line application, or as a back-end to other programs. Like all GNU software it is free software, and is licensed under the GNU GPL.

Kooka, which is the KDE environment's default scanning application can use Ocrad as its OCR engine.
