Default OCR GPS/Loran Numbers

I have a whole bunch of old Loran and GPS number that are on typed sheets of paper. I would like to have them converted so I can put them in my GPS but first I need to get them from paper to digital form (Excel would be ideal). Is anyone aware of an OCR or OCR-like process that can do this? I can easily turn them into a searchable PDF but that doesn't do it. I'm trying to avoid manually typing 5-600 numbers if I can.

You may have some luck,I never did even with typed numbers,the resolution wasn't accurate enough.Newer readers may do better.It ended up being faster to type a lot in( thousands) rather than having to proofread them line by line.
