Hi, Bob. I think this is probably the issue where there is the most disagreement among frequent submitters. I think both sides of the issue have merit and hope I will describe how I do things without making anyone else's way sound wrong. I always use the correction tool. The Kurzweil default corrections file has been developed to focus on fixing obvious scannos. I have added some scannos that I see often, making sure I don't correct words that shouldn't be. For example, I have a correction for the scanno cornpany to be replaced with company. I scan books from 3 genres, none of which is science fiction. So the chances are very good that cornpany is not going to be someone's name. On the other hand, I can't use the corrections file for the word die to be replaced with the because die is a real word and is often used correctly in books. So while the tool has the potential to cause trouble, it can also do a lot of heavy lifting for you if you tend to scan books within specific genres or by certain publishers. If you work on a wide range of books or scan a lot of science fiction or fantasy books, you may want to leave the correction tool turned off because of the made-up words commonly found in those genres. If you are reading this and use Openbook, there are a few corrections you might want to delete from Openbook's default correction list. This only applies to Openbook. Remove the tom for torn, glock for clock, modem for modern, and bum for burn entries because they actually replace legitimate words. I usually scan mysteries, business books, and nonfiction. Here is a list of my favorite corrections that save me time. Openbook users can use these too. Tbis for this Cbapter for chapter Diere for there Diemselves for themselves Dirough for through Dioroughly for thoroughly Tuming for turning Buming for burning Cornpany for company Cornfortable for comfortable Thc for the Tbe for the Diink for think Thcse for these I hope this is helpful. Please speak up if this seems confusing or if you think I missed something important.
