Question
I have typed 200 pages in notepad by seeing tiff image files. Now I need an software to cross check the notepad with tiff file for errors.

Is there any software for cross checking the notepad and image file?

Answer
I'm afraid the answer is basically no - to a human, a picture with words in it has words, but to a computer a picture is a picture made up of lots of dots.  The only method would be to use OCR Software, but as this isn't 100% accurate you would then need to check the file - which was what you were trying to avoid in the first place.
