In case you need to quickly recognize a text from an image file and don’t have ABBYY FineReader installed, there is an online analogue. Moreover, it is completely free. It is called Free OCR and is located here: http://www.free-ocr.com/
One thing made me laugh: they have to use Captcha technology to protect the website from spammers who used it for captcha breaking! This argument is enough to prove the service efficiency. =)
Hope this service will be helpful to someone as it was to me.
