Has anybody tried to use any Japanese OCR software: \"Kanji Scan OC\", \"Kanji OCR\", etc?

If yes, please share your experience. I am thinking about purchasing such a software, but I want to know your opinion!

Have a look at

Thanks. but no Japanese support Mar 28, 2002

I checked out the webpage - looks like a great product, but it does not handle Japanese. I think it does not support any Asian languages.
