I know my idea of word combinations is useful for proofreaders. I mean here the with die of die in the and so forth.
The trouble is, if you have die for the you often have other errors such as m replacing th mat for that and all the words with the in them such as modier mother fadier father diem them and themselves there theirand on and on and on. So if submitters read a few pages after scanning and then use optimize scanner settings if that is available to them or work on their settings it will be far far less work for proofreaders.
A little up front checking can literally save hours of correcting time Remember the the for die is particularly annoying as it spawns so many errors(think whether weather neither and so on) But lots of things can be prevented if you first scan a couple of pages and then use a spell checker or read over the scan. You can catch words run together without spaces, words with hyphens that ought not to be there, junk characters and lots of other things. If you just read a couple of pages before scanning an entire book, you too can catch patterns before they turn into nightmares. Elizabeth
