Recommend me an OCR program

Specs: several
I tried to use three different optical character recognition
programs, and had a problem with each. One came with
an Epson scanner I no longer have. I doubleclicked the
exe that appears to be the OCR app, and it wanted a
scanner plugged in. I know it was intended to be started
from the main Epson program, but I figured it might work
all by itself. I might continue poking and prodding it. One
thing I could try is to plug in my new Canon scanner. But
the image I want to transcribe is a screen shot.

The second OCR program is part of Windows 10. To use
it -- at least the first time -- apparently I have to connect to
the Internet and have a Microsoft account. What the...

The third program was found in a search. I downloaded it,
but when I went to install it, it complained that it wants to
connect to the Internet, too.

Can you recommend an OCR program to me?
