I have uploaded several scanned documents to Google Documents and I just noticed that some form of OCR has taken place on those documents.
I had not OCR'd them myself.
Google Docs offers an amount of free storage though I have paid for the 10gb extra storage which is very reasonably priced.

What is the quality of the OCR? Any misspelled words or artfacts?

It is finding words ok-it is not attempting to correct words. The document I tested it on was a very old one with very old spelling.
