Check out aspell:
It has a "suggestion" feature with various modes of operation; I'm not
sure how you might turn it into a fully-automated process but there's
probably an option to make it automatically choose the most likely
replacement, and then pipe the output to a file.

Subject: [TriLUG] Automatic Spell Checking in Linux
My project at work is about to start OCRing thousands of pages of stuff
I would like some way to run an input file of messed up OCR stuff and
it spell check and return the most likely spellings automatically.
Think of it like Google where you type "Lnus Torvald" and it says "Did
mean Linus Torvald?"
So basically, does anyone know of a program that will perform all of
stuff automatically for a text file and then allow it to output a new
chunk of text with the changes made.
Any help would be appreciated!
