Melissa,

You have it right, the technology exists but it so hard to afford it. Even when I still worked $995 would have been steep, much less with a SSDI check for income. Does anyone offer payment plans for their software? Thanks, Tim ----- Original Message ----- From: "Melissa Smith" <mdsmith25@xxxxxxxx>

Tim, I just got Kurzweil this summer. It is $995.00. It is high, but
well worth it. I know some are using OmniPage Pro, which isn't as high,
but I don't personally have any experience with it. I sure wish more
assistive technology  companies would develop payment plans considering
the cost of their products.

Hi Melissa,

What are you using now to scan? I am not blessed with huge RAM, so a
memory hog would be a concern. Thanks for your reply. Tim

I used this software about 5 years ago. It did a pretty decent job with
character recognition. My biggest complaint, was that it was a huge
memory hog. Often times, I would get the message that I was out of
virtual memory while using this program. I had a pretty good amount of
ram at the time. The latest version may be better, though.Other than
that, I don't remember much about the program.

Hello all,

I am looking to get started scanning books and have two questions.
First, I am looking at buying Text Cloner Pro and wondered if anyone
here uses it, and if so what do you think of this software? Secondly,
can anyone recommend a good cheap scanner that works well for scanning
books? I greatly appreciate any help. Tim
