Hello Munawar, 

When I am scanning I keep all the information in the KES file. This allows
me to go back and re-recognize pages and do any cleanup. When Kurzweil saves
into RTF it only keeps the text information. I wish I had a copy of that
program  I could take a look at how it saves files. IT is almost as if it is
keeping some of the non text data. Maybe someone on the list that uses that
program can chime in.

Hello,
Thanks for your response. Do you specifically tell Kurzweil to remove all
graphical formatting so that all you have is text and page holders, or do
you keep all graphical formatting retained?
Thanks,

HI Munawar,
I use Kurzweil 1000. I believe both programs scan into TIF files. When I can
always put a book in one file when scanning unless I use grey scale in the
scanning process. When I get ready to upload a book I then do a save as and
save it into RTF format. I wonder if there is something happening where
images or some of the image information is left in the RTF file. I don't
have that program.

Hello,
What program do you use to scan your books? I do my OCR with omnipage, but I
scan files into a .tif image file so that I get 100 pages per document.
After that I merge all the rtf docs into one rtf.

HI,

This has been somewhat addressed, but even with a book of around 600 pages,
when I convert it from KES to RTF the RTF file is only a little over a meg.
I am not sure what you are converting from but check your settings.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Compressing RTF: file too big for upload

Hello All,
I used to submit books in text format because the RTF versions were too big
to upload -- 40 mb or so. By the time the upload was done, my session would
expire and I would be told to log in again and my book was not uploaded.
However, Bookshare no longer accepts text format. Is there any way to get my
RTF to be any ssmaller? I scanned it using the .TIF image format, in which
several pages are scanned into one image. This puts each scanned page on its
separate page when I OCR it with Omnipage. When I combine the three or so
RTF files into 1, (I can only scan 100 pages into each TIF file) the
resulting RTF is over 40 MB. Is there any way to strip the RTF of it's
graphical formatting -- color, alignment, Etc. while still keeping page
numbers? Thanks for any help.
