Sorry about that previous post to the list. If it went out, it was intended
only for Pat. <blush>
But having interrupted you, let me ask a question. I have some documents I
am going to be scanning. Mostly they will fall into two categories:
1) Things that are mostly schematics.
2) Things with a large text component that I might want to try to OCR.
a) What resolution should I use for these two things?
b) What OCR software do you recommend when I am scanning a book that has to
be scanned 1 page at a time. I started with the Brainiacs book from Edmund
C. Berkeley and every page is a separate tiff file. Now this book has very
little text, so I could just tar them or zip them, but if I had one with
lots of text, how can I get all these tiff files back into one document when
I OCR it without a bunch of cutting ans pasting?
