SE is an open source (C#) subtitle editor with main focus on creating/editing/sync'ing/adjusting/fixing subtitles, but SE can also import and ocr vobsub and blu-ray image based subtitles (even from matroska/mp4 files), and DVB sub from .ts files.
SE supports 250+ subtitle formats - let me know if you need more
Can create blu-ray sup files from version 3.2.3.

Available for Windows and Linux (and mac alpha light)

It looks promising.
I never used it before, that's why I would ask you how well manages SE32 to work with DVD subtitles (SUP), like retiming, synching (to other/preexistent SUP), bitmap editing etc?

Not too well
SE can read and ocr dvds/vobsub/blu-ray sup + a few more image based formats - but the only image based format SE can write is bdn xml/png.

(the blu-ray sup code is converted from 0xdeadbeef's java code for BDSup2Sub)

Looks like it's still Hunspell suggest!
I could not re-create this error on my Win7 machine, but I've tried to fix it here (by running suggestions in a separate thread): http://www.nikse.dk/SubtitleEdit.zip
Any better?

Sorry for the delay, Nikse555,
Before I tried your update, I had to download the srt from MediaFire as I did not
keep a verbatim copy. I tried it with the original faulting build 25663, and it did
not fault. Tried this several times, no fault. Got the version srt that I kept,
(probably spell checked via other means) and checked that, same thing, no
fault. Have not ripped any other subs since then (I think) and made no changes
to the setup. I guess it will have to remain a mystery.

EDIT: Also tried with build 13726, no fault (earlier build No ???).

What do I do to OCR German subs? I've downloaded a German Tesseract package and unpacked it to the program dir but to no avail. I pretty much have to type every word?

Yep, the nhunspell "suggest-method" is not entirely stable

The German tesseract package should be unpacked to Tesseract\tessdata. Unpacked the file is called deu.traineddata.
Do choose Tesseract as OCR method (not image compare)
And if you're lazy just get this version with German dictionaries included: http://subtitleedit.googlecode.com/files/SE322DE.zip

Mm, I had unpacked it to Subtitle Edit\tesseract\tessdata but ok, your de package is fine, thanks. It also works pretty good, however some events described in parenthesis for the hearing impaired are recognized with mixed case, like

(KEucH†) instead of (KEUCHT)
(I_AcH†) instead of (LACHT).

Also, the small t is recognized as a small l which messes up a lot of items and can only be fixed manually. These new words don't even exit in the German language so shouldn't spellchecking kick in with "prompt for unkown words" being checked? Then the distance between two words ending with r and starting with j is not recognized. Instead of "aber jetzt" it reads "aberjetzt". What can I do to improve this? Thanks.

Yes... problems with loading German dictionary should be fixed here: http://www.nikse.dk/SubtitleEdit.zip
(Tesseract should also be a bit faster now)

When you press "change all" or "use always" the correction is remembered in OcrFixReplacelist.xml...

This actually works really good! almost all of the text is right on, and the GUI guides your through smoothly when it needs a fix.

I have a rather strange auto fix though (some kind of error or bug): http://i1208.photobucket.com/albums/...kon/weirds.png

If you want the .SUP that caused this error to occur give me an email address I can send the file to. (Upon further testing this weird error only happens if the "Try MS MODI OCR for unknown words" checkbox is checked, If I un-check it then this strange substitution does not happen.)

The only OCR error that I get that does not get automatically corrected is the letter "k" being detected as "l<" and not being auto corrected: http://i1208.photobucket.com/albums/cc361/xekon/k.png

I notice similar errors in OCR but they DO get auto corrected like "I\/ly" -> "My"

is there a way I can add "l<" to be autocorrected to "k" ?

also a setting in the options panel to disable "Try MS MODI OCR for unknown words" by default would be handy, then I wouldn't have to uncheck it every subtitle I load

I have also had "d" been detected as "ol" pretty often, then the spell checker dont recognize the word so I edit it manually and change the "ol" to "d"

like the word worried, gets detected as worrieol

OK, this setting is now remembered - but I've also improved then check for when to use MODI, so do try to keep it on.

Tesseract (new 3.01 version) now runs in it's own thread, so it should be a bit faster too.

Link to new version:
http://www.nikse.dk/SubtitleEdit.zip

How is it working?

Mh, this file contains no German dictionary so I copied the one from the de.zip over.

The German Umlaut ü (u with two dots above) is often recognized as two i's: ii. Since it's common in several words, how do I replace it for all of them? Thx.

You can edit [Subtitle edit folder]\Dictionaries\deu_OCRFixReplaceList.xml - add a new WordPart under PartialWords:
<PartialWords>
...
<WordPart from="ii" to="ü" />
</PartialWords>
SE will now look for correct spelled words, where "ii" is replaced with "ü".

You can also take a look at "eng_OCRFixReplaceList.xml".

Just wanted to stop in here and say thank you for this awesome tool. I love loading up a .sup, letting OCR rip through and having minimal work to correct errors. I can get through an entire movie in 20 minutes.
