I've run into a couple books recently when proofreading that have the following scanno: the word hi in lower case instead of the correct word in. It occurs throughout the entire book.

You guys who scan, what causes this? Is it a characteristic of any particular OCRing setting or program?

It's more of a curiosity question than anything else, mostly because it's cropped up a couple of times now. It's a scanno a proofreader finds only if they are carefully reading the book word for word, because it of course doesn't show up on a spell check.
