The interface, being a JAR file is extremely clumsy and difficult to navigate. It is not very intuitive, but it seems to work in a simple test. The poorest aspect is that you have to type in the path to your source file. Installation is long and involved. Xcode is also a requirement, something not stated. You must first install MacPorts, first finding it and learning how to install it. Then you find out that the install failed because you first need to use the xcode-select command, so you do that and then install MacPorts. Then you need to install the stated requirements (using MacPorts): tesseract, ImageMagick and Xpdf. Starting TessOCR requires you to then log out and then login and restart TessOCR. It needs to be rewritten in a more usable format.
