My scanner recently broke and I'm looking for a way to scan multi-page documents using my web camera. Ideally, I'd like some sort of program that would analyse/average multiple images from the webcam to produce a crisper image inside a program like XSane.

If I had a better camera I could probably just take a picture with cheese / kameraka and then aggregate the output and convert to pdf. However, my webcam quality is too low, and I'd prefer the capture program to be be aggregating the images into a single file.

Great link! However I let google do the OCRing for me - hence the need for PDF output. – virtualxtc Jan 7 '14 at 4:13
