May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

If you decide you want to tackle the project, and if you find the OCR text has too many errors (I haven't looked at the text), let me know. I can now OCR a PDF and produce text with far fewer errors than Google Books, while retaining the use of italics (and even bold in many cases)

HI

I have had omnipage pro for years now I didn't get 18 because because there was no actual improvement to the OCR like 17 had

I love the double click feature for checking that words location in the page of original file from the text editor

I do my own scanning to I have a flatbed so it requires the destruction of the book I cut it apart with a razor blade

It being able to scan PDF's is a big bonus

God Bless and Keep you

Good deal, great to have another guy who can digitize books. I have a sheet fed scanner and can knock a book out pretty fast. There's a lot of great material that's never been digitized. I haven't yet mastered removing the spines so i just get a copy shop to cut them off. When I get done with Dr. Peter Pett's commentary, I have quite a few books lined up. Pett's commentary is a lot larger than I thought and quite scholarly--maybe 60+ megs when finished.

We ought to Ocr the same pdf to see what recognition differences there are between 18 and 17. I never used 17 but I'm thrilled with Omnipage 18. It beat abby finereader on every experiment I have run.

Hey Josh, when you talk about Ocr'ing the same pdf, what exactly do you mean? Please excuse my ignorance.

Software with Optical Character Recognition, or OCR, will create a word processor file (text) from your PDF. Each page of your PDF is just a scan (a digital picture) of a document. The software detects what each character most closely resembles and reconstructs the document into text that you can edit. The accuracy is amazing if the scan is clear.

But don't think you could take the results and turn it into a professor as a term paper. It's far from flawless. Greek and Hebrew characters, when mixed with English, result in gibberish. There will be also be typos in the English, such as "bv" instead of "by". The software algorithms will now reliably exclude headers and footers, along with proper detection of paragraphs and headers, so that the rest of your text doesn't have unnecessary line breaks.

I have TextBridge. How would I get it to read a PDF file? I thought you had to put a page into a flatbed scanner and scan it using, let's say, TextBridge.

I don't have TextBridge, and have never used it. But generally with OCR software, you can scan directly from a scanner and work from there. Or you can OCR an existing PDF. Since you seem to already have a PDF, just start Nuance. And try dragging and dropping a PDF into Nuance. What are you trying to scan?
