[bksvol-discuss] Re: pages that won't scan right.

Donna, I am using a perfection 1200 U scanner, and of course Kurzweil.
Generally when the garbled letters occur, it can be in regular text. For no 
reason at all, they just happen. I notice, that it is usually at the top or 
bottom of pages, but it doesn't have to be. I just got a book rejected, because 
apparently two pages stuck together. That'll teach me. smile.

Hi Jim.

 

Before answering your questions, it would be helpful to know:

 

  1.. What scanning software do you use? 
  2.. Are the pages you're having trouble with straight text like the rest of 
the book, or are they different such as containing tables, charts or pictures? 
 

Peace and Hope,

 

Donna

Hi Anastasia,

When you scan a book, do you do it one page at a time, or just put the 
automatic scan on, and scan the book while you read?

Hi Jim
I scan lots of pages and hve learned a few tricks.
1. make sure the page isnt folded. That happened to me once and I feld stupid.
2. fiddle around with brightness setting. sometimes the nimver needs to be 
increased and sometimes it needs to be decreased. 
3. there is a setting on my program  that says white on black. That takes care 
of colored writing yellow on blue for example.
what book are you trying t scan?
If I can get it I'll take a look. 

my local library is closed until later this month. That's why I haven't been 
making offers to scan.
Take care
Good luck Jim.
Anastasia
