I had an opportunity to see a Yizkor book today for the first time and
saw the immense problems most of us would have with translation.

For english text, I can scan a document into my computer and have an OCR
(optical character recognition) program convert it into, for example a
Microsoft Word document. I can then scan the document for a specific
word or phrase.

Does such a facility/software program exist for Hebrew?
If so, is it reliable?
