Dear Ura-list readers,

I want to inform you that the language list of the scanned text recognition
program FineReader 5.0 includes the following Uralic languages: Estonian,
Finnish, Hungarian, Khanty, Mansi, Mari, Mordvin, Nenets, Selkup and
Udmurt. This means that if you have a PC computer, a scanner and the
program you can transform printed pages to text files in a text editor
(e.g. MS Word). Such text files can then be used as material for computer
corpora. For information about FineReader see
