[macvoiceover] Re: Abbyy Fine Reader with scanners or Isight.

Hi Cheryl,
    Thank you for the information.  It's interesting because my scanner 
facility does not give me the option to do much.  Once the image is selected, 
it says it's scanning to FineReader, but nothing else happens.  I guess I'll 
use Vuscan for the scanner part.

Take Care
John
