OpenBook v6 is very old. Since then there have been significant advances in accuracy of text recognition. You may still be in time to obtain a low cost upgrade to Openbook 8.

But every Time I lay a page of the book like that on the scanner especially the title page it comes out jibberish like abunch of letters and a bunch of periods. I use a epson scanner as well. I use use version 6 of openbook. Could that be why the title page comes out unreadable? Is there a version of open book that can recignize text better than version 6.0 of open book?
