Scan and OCR using ActiveX

P: n/a
----------------------------------------------------------------
I need to write a VB.NET application that uses ActiveX to scan
(remotely) a paper, OCR it, and save it into some file.

- Where should I begin?
- Any sample code to learn VB.NET for that purpose?
(I already know some VB)
- What software should I use? (Omnipage?)
- Where to download the ActiveX from?

Thank you

Here is a link to a VB.NET conversion of a C# program that will get you
started. There is no OCR capabilities in it. But, it will use your
scanner's software to scan. This code will work only on Win2K and WinXP.
