And that is some of the most helpful scanning advice I have ever received. Those items are checked by default and unchecking them makes a world of difference!

Hi, Kenny. Yes, I'd try adjusting the settings to see if I can get a better scan of that page. If you're using Openbook, there are a couple of settings that are turned on when you first install Openbook that should be turned off when you're scanning most types of books. I can only describe this in Openbook 6 and 7 because I chose not to upgrade to version 8. If you own Openbook 8, you may want to look for similar settings to these. In case you haven't tried this, it may help you get better results. In the settings menu where the scanning settings are located, look for something that says de-speckle. This should be turned off and only turned on if you are scanning newspaper print or a hardcover book where there is a small decoration on the paper around the print letters. In addition, unchecking the box for language analyst will improve recognition if you're scanning most books. The final setting you can experiment with is called something like light text on dark background. It has a slightly different name depending on the version of Openbook you're using. After unchecking the boxes for these three settings, my scans improved markedly. I liked them so much that I saved the settings as my default so I wouldn't have to remember to change them each time I'd start a new scan. Hope this helps. -- Monica Willyard Visit my blog at http://www.scannersguild.com To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
