Hi Monica-- Yes, the text does make sense. Sometimes there is a line or two of junk characters, but otherwise the text looks good. Then other times I can't get past an 89 recognition. Lol, its driving me batty. I've been here for hours, and I haven't gotten very far. Uggg! Thanks for the help.

Hi, Georgina. When you read the pages, does the text make sense? The reason I'm asking is that the "page complete" sound that Kurzweil says may be colliding with another spoken prompt like the progress of the recognition or the confidence thresholding. So your pages may be complete after all. If Kurzweil has two messages to speak at the same time, one of them just can't be spoken or it may be interrupted. I find Kurzweil to be a little chatty during scanning, so I make some changes in the verbosity settings. I have it play a chime when scanning or recognition are complete, and I turn off the speaking of the scanning and recognition progress. Kurzweil calls this disabling the event. By doing this, I hear a chime when a page has been scanned. I turn the page at that point and keep going. I do leave the announcement for the confidence threshold turned on because it lets me know if a page has scanned badly. I can easily fix it since I'm still near that page in the book. I hope this helps you out. On 12/20/08, Georgina <culmer@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote:Hi All-- I was wondering if anybody was scanning using an Epson 4490.
