My understanding about OCR packages is that when you spend money for
the upgraded version you are buying the increased recognition
capability.  I couldn't convince my OCR lite package to reliably
translate ChOpPy line printer output or dot matrix printouts.  I
suspect that these are tough roblems for OCR software to begin with
and that they are especially tough cases for the 'lite' software.
