+pdfsandwich generates "sandwich" OCR pdf files, i.e. pdf files which
+contain only images (no text) will be processed by optical character
+recognition (OCR) and the text will be added to each page invisibly
+"behind" the images.
+pdfsandwich is a command line tool which is supposed to be useful to
+OCR scanned books or journals. It is able to recognize the page layout
+even for multicolumn text.
+Essentially, pdfsandwich is a wrapper script which calls the following
+binaries: convert, cuneiform, gs, and hocr2pdf. It is known to run on
+Unix systems and has been tested on Linux and MacOS X. It supports
+parallel processing on multiprocessor systems.
