Any OCR programs for Linux that output ASCII Text?

I thought jocr could be used from the command line.  It's been a long time 
since I tried to use it, though, and I don't know how useful it is.  I'm 
sure there's room for improvement.  There's also something called ocre, 
but I haven't ever looked at it, either.
