Is that today's newer owner users might expect better than 98% accuracy. So there it is. What? The 98% accuracy. Let's see what that means.
Academic books get 600 words to a page, 400 is more common so let's stick to 400 and see how many errors per page.
I get 8 errors per page.
Hope this helps you see what you are in for. Yes it is faster than re-typing the content but some expected better.
Just Starting Out in OCR:
I?m looking for a reliable Optical Character Recognition (OCR) program in the under-$200 range. My aim is to convert English-language printed text from various scanned sources into clear, accurate, editable MS Word and Adobe PDF files. Nothing fancy.
I have two computer setups at home:
1 ? Primary - Dell Vostro 420 Desktop (Vista Business 32 bit) that works with an HP C-4480 All-In-One color printer/scanner/copier.
2 ? Backup - Dell Latitude D820 Laptop operating (XP Professional) that works with an Epson Perfection 4490 flatbed scanner.
Can anyone offer suggestions ? tips -- do?s and don?ts -- links ? leads to published material for OCR newbies? Lastly, will the aforementioned scanners work with any OCR software?
P.S. ? how does the I.R.I.S. Readiris 13 Pro OCR program stack up in this regard?
