Hi Shelly, Thank you for your contributions. I appreciate the efforts of those scanning and proofing books. I am interested in the process. I have scanned some books. I would not want to submit them due to the errors. Is there any article or book with information on the most efficient way to scan? For instance, in Kurzweil, there is a function to keep the unrecognized file. From that one may re-recognize the file. Is that effective. Another question. How do you determine the optimum settings for a given book. There is a bemusing array of choices of contrast, speckle reduction, dots per inch and scanning engines. Any thoughts or references you or anyone else have, are of interest to me. -----Original Message----- From: Shelley L.

You get a lot of editing done. Submitted the following three books today. Primates (World of Animals: mammals Vol 4) This is very similar to the two volumes we have on the site, and is the forth in the fifty volume book set. Is one of the better book series on the topic. has been edited. Beginner's Guide to Candlemaking Really short book on candlemaking with good step by step directions, precautions and ideas for decorative candles. The Complete Standard poodle this dog is becoming quite the prominent guide dog breed, so wanted to make a book avialbe on it. This book focuses exclusively on the Standard poodle, and talks about the trims, colors, history, and care of this dog, plus a large variety of jobs that they are trained for today. I marked it good because there are three or four pages where there was a picture caption right next to the text and even though I had recognize columsn on, it didn't recognize them. I tried with columns off, and it was worse. I am not that a dedicated prevalidator, and ran out of patience, smile. So I left them. Beyond that, the book is perfect as I could make it, and very informative. I got to touch my first poodle guide at the reunion, and a real neat coat type. felt softer but very similar to sheered sheep wool. So happy validating, plenty more where that comes from, smile.
