Hi

as far as I'm aware there's no other software which can do OCR of 
mathematical content.  You could use any other OCR software to recognise 
the text content of the book, (and possibly even very basic mathematical 
expressions), but for all the non-standard symbols, fractions, etc, you 
need Infty.

What problem are you facing with Infty?
