This is one of my more obscure questions and involves scanning
not paper but something they used to store books, magazines,
and newspapers--before the computer age. It is called a
microfiche (or fiche). A friend got a copy of a rare
out-of-print, not-for-sale book on microfiche. We're looking
for some means of scanning this film into a scanner with
OCR. So far, he has tried a camera with 8G memory. No joy,
the scanner sees garbage. Anybody out there ever have anything
like this prob? The book is from 1913 so it is well in the
public domain. I've already written Google; zero response.
I want to get this book up on my site, fully HTML it so that
everybody has the opportunity to ready it ... .
thanks for any insights,
