I scan paperbacks on my opticbook all the time and haven't noticed that problem. My wife validates the books and she hasn't mentioned this problem to me. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Robert Riddle" <captinlogic@xxxxxxxxx>

That opticbook is best suited for hardbacks, rather than paperbacks. This is because the light doesn't go all the way to the edge of the scanner, but stops about an inch in. This means that if you try scanning a regular paperback by putting the binder flush with the edge, you'll get chopped off words because the inner margins didn't get scanned. Try using a hardback on an opticbook. YOu'll be amazed. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Meka White" <mekawh@xxxxxxxxx>

Hi Jackie and others:

I am reminded of a problem that I have in terms of the opticbook.

Whenever I use the reading edge with kurzweil, I never, and I do mean never,
get a clean scan.  It's so full of errors and it hits way below a normal
confidence level. I have used different books, have tried optimizing, but to
no avail.

Do you have any suggestions?  I thought I wasn't using the edge correctly
but after Jackie's explanation, I realize that I'm at least doing the
mechanics correctly.
