It may not work most of the time but I used MS-OneNote 2010 to transcribe a war memorial this evening.

By copying the image onto a OneNote Tab you can right click and use the ‘Copy Text from Picture’ option. Then paste using the ‘Keep Text Only’ option.

It wasn’t 100% perfect but it was certainly 95% correct.

I haven’t tried it on other photographs yet but anything with sharp black lead or black paint lettering on white marble or grey granite would probably work.
