+title: "Rescribe Desktop Tool v1.0.0 released"
+date: 2022-03-22
+categories: [software, tools, desktop tool, pdf]
+Today we're very happy to announce the v1.0.0 release of the
+desktop OCR tool *Rescribe*. It's free to download now from
+[our Rescribe page](,
+and it will work on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
+![Screenshot of rescribe tool](screenshot-01.png)
+This release brings several major new features, a graphical
+interface, support for reading PDFs directly, and an integrated
+Google Book downloader chief among them. There are heaps of
+smaller changes, too, like removing the limitation to name image
+files in a particular way, adding the option to disable
+automatic margin wiping, and adding the option to create the
+searchable PDF using original size page images, for those who
+value quality more than disk space in their PDFs.
+This wouldn't have been possible without the generous support
+of backers from [Kickstarter](,
+who as well as backing us with their money also kindly offered
+their time and energy to test early Beta versions of the software,
+and gave great suggestions for changes and features to add.
+If you have any problems with it, please do let us know at
+[]( and we'll be happy
+to help you out.
+And a friendly reminder that if you have or are considering a
+project where historical OCR could be useful, do reach out, we're
+always happy to advise and help with such projects, whether large
+or small!
