Default OCR of hand-printed lowercase letters

I understand this is available from Microsoft Office. Can someone tell
me yea or nay, and then direct me to it?
And if not, what software can I download for this?
The OCR in my Lexmark All-in-One works fine for regular typed/font
letters, but not hand-generated.

Ignoring the inane comment, I repeat the third line of my query:

Any software that would OCR hand written text is bound to be very expensive.
Far from a trivial problem even using printer output for OCR. As an example,
my handwriting they'd never be able to fathom as I seldom even can

Yes, that's true with many people. But hand-printed letters that are
*almost* as clear as typed letters is what I'm hoping somebody can handle.
