[bksvol-discuss] Re: images scanning and recognizing

Louise,

I think maybe there is a third option. I can scan from
8 to to 10 or 12 pages at once (but sequentially;
Ihave to set eaach page on the platen) and then
recognize and convert them to Word. Theoretically I
could go to 16,and I think I did once, but more
recently I haven't been able to without the OCR not
working after a few times, so I don't try more than 12
any  more. My Epson 1660 has an option of All PAges in
One Document or One Document per Page. I choose the
former. It also puts in page breaks at the appropriate
place when it converts.
