With my original OCR program, which was Fine Reader, the same thing appened to me, i.e. it froze if I did too many pages as a timne so I settled on 10 or 12. The one I have now only allows me to do a page at a time because it's a limited free version. However, it scans more qickly and saves and coverts more qickly. Maybe that's because I'm only doing one page at a time. grin. So I scan and save and then open everything and paste into the Word documnt before valdiating. OF course noe I'm not doing hwole books--just missing pages or chapters. BUt before, when I was doinog books, I was writing down the page numbers as I scanned tham and still I found I'd souble-scanned or omitted. You're right--we're only human. smile Cindy > -----Original Message----- > From: jamieyates@xxxxxxxxxxx > Sent: Fri, 12 Jan 2007 05:00:47 -0800 (PST) > To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Missing pages.chapter > > I like to scan 2 pages, then ocr them, then copy and > paste them into Word, and then do the next 2 pages. > I've found with the new-to-me-scanner though that it > scans faster so I've been doing maybe 10 pages and > then doing it.
