When you open the optimize menu, you have two choices: Scan and Recognition. You can only choose Recognition if you are keeping images in your scans. Let's ignore that one for the moment. If you go to the Scan portion of Optimize, you will enter a dialog box that gives you a number of things to check. You can check or uncheck whichever ones you wish. Some are checked by default, others are unchecked by default. Once you've tabbed through to Okay, the optimization will begin. Make sure not to move the book until K1000 says, "Optimization complete." Then you can tab through the settings and see what has changed. Tab through to Okay again, or just hit the Enter key if you don't want to see the settings, and you'll be done.

I am very confused about optimization. I open a Anddf, stop recognition and clic on optimize ... and nothing happens.

Maybe I just need to get used to it; but K1000 really confuses me.

Two things you can do: You can use the Optimization wizard in the
Scan menu
and wait for K1000 to try and get the best scan it can.  Or, you
can go
immediately for grayscale in the Scan portion of the Settings
menu.  That
will very often give you a pretty good result.  The recognition
may take
longer, substantially longer on an older system, although I don't
think
that's much of an issue these days.  But grayscale will give you
good scans
even when other settings will not.

Dear Booksharians,

I just received my copy of Kurzweil 1000 for personal use.  I am
wondering
if anybody has general tips on scan/recognition settings to make
the raw
scans come out as good and clean as possible.  I am a new user,
so I have
no idea what works and what doesn't.  Any assistance is much
appreciated.
