Periodically I photograph the pages as a backup.


Same here. Does anyone know of any freely available OCR software which will scan logbook photos/scans and create some sort of CSV or spreadsheet file from it?

Makes CSV files from PDFs, assuming logbook scans can be PDFs. Haven't looked at it or tried it or anything.

Assumes a PDF containing text (perhaps one that's been generated by a Word Processor or similar), rather than an image (i.e. one that's been scanned).

Ah well.
