First of all, install all these so that you will have a choice: 

ocrad, tesseract, gocr and cuneiform 

These are the actual ocr engines which do the text recognition in the first place.  

After this, if you are in a graphical environment install ocrfeeder which is the basic open-book framework.  Also make sure you have sane in if you 
are using a scanner.  Make sure sane can recognize your scanner.  

Now, you are ready to try it.  I have no scanner so I have never used this but it might just do the trick for you.  

Hope this helps.
