Thanks, there appear to be some great free alternatives to SnagIt that I
need to check out.

However, what I'm really looking for is something like this
http://www.etrusoft.com/screen-capture-software-reviews/Kleptomania.htm that
is 100% free. I'm needing to do OCR screen capture from a non-Windows
device that is connected to my Windows PC. While Kleptomania would work
great, the $30 price tag--while certainly modest--eliminates it from
consideration (the PC-neophyte end users for whom I'm writing would balk at
that, rendering my effort completely moot).
