What are some excellent OCR software for scanning text into Word?

Question: I would like to scan some of my short stories into Word but my scanner does a lousy job with OCR. It scrambles text and sometimes I can't even remove the glitches! (Puzzling and frustrating.) I need to be able to edit the scanned text.
