HI Alexis,


This is common for the OCR software to do with pictures or illustrations. IT
may pick up a word or so but it is mostly odd symbols. The best thing to do
in this case is keep the caption and delete the gibberish. 


The other option would be to have sighted assistance and put a description
of the picture but not required.

Just submitted a book entitled "The Little Book of Hugs."  There are many
pictures in the print version that didn't scan.  When the OCR was applied to
the text, the pictures converted to letters and symbols that didn't make
sense.  I'm not sure if this will be difficult for the volunteer who
validates it or not.  Most of the pictures have captions that scanned

It's not radically different. Just radically better.
