I have quite a few images of text saved as .jpg files that I wish to convert to text. I would prefer to use Word for Mac 2011 but I also have Pages (latest version). I would prefer a free version as I seldom need this functionality. My MS Word for Mac 2011 is a paid and registered version but I'm having a difficult time trying to find an OCR or Document Imaging add-on from the MS office site.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion
