> b) What OCR software do you recommend when I am scanning > a book that has to be scanned 1 page at a time. I use Corel OCR-Trace v8, from 1998, nearly on topic. It really wants to use 300dpi 1 level, and I typically save as 300dpi 8bit for posterity, then downcast to 1bit before the OCR. Scanning at 2400 bpi seems too much like microscopy to be practical <g>. John A.
