Ocropus does some pre-processing before it uses tesseract.
This is things like breaking the origional image into blocks of text and 
so on.
The idea is also that ocropus will be able to use more than one scan 
engine in the long run.
Why not then just use tesseract? At the end of the day, because using it 
through ocropus will give better results.
Regards, Willem
