I want to scan ~400 pp of an out-of-print and out-of-copyright
book (from 1913) and need to know what the best scanner is
and if there has been substantial improvement in OCR
software in recent years. This book has few footnotes
or different typefaces, so it should make things easier.
Oh, an if there is something that plugs into DOS/DOZE
and just works, super. I'lll use my W2K box. (Hopefully,
something that plugs into COM0 or COM1. USB okay too.)
thanks for any clues; I've never used a scanner before!
--yea, no kidding:-)
