3) That leaves IRIS ReadIRIS Pro 11 at $110. I will most likely go with it.
I have an older version of ABBYY FineReader that I got (free) on a magazine cover disk. I rarely need it, but it's excellent and I never felt the need to upgrade.

You might try to find an offer on eBay... for any of these, really, but I found FineReader much better than what came with PaperPort which came with a scanner. (Says she who just placed her first-ever bid on eBay! )
