I am almost sure there is no such thing as an Open Source Arabic OCR.
The only people who are involved in such a thing I know of (who have had
varying degrees of success) are Sakhr. There are probably others
involved -- but such applications require some serious funding,
research, equipment, etc. It's like expecting Open Source games to be
comparable with multi-million dollar commercial games.
