    SCANNING TEXT AND ATLAS


    Content-disposition: inline

    Might I ask if anyone has had luck
    using a scanner to digitize
    hardcopy text so that it
    is clear enough to use as a PD?
    If so, might I ask for brand
    names/models of the equipment?

    SCANNING TEXT AND ATLAS


    Tom,
    I have been scanning a lot of hardcopies for use as PDs. Often this has
    worked fine but sometimes it hasn't. If you have very clear originals and
    you are able to place them flush against the scanner glass, things
    typically work out well. If the original is not of high quality and/or you
    can't place it flush against the glass (a problem with bound volumes), then
    you may get an unusable file. Problems vary by degree here: Sometimes I get
    a file that has a few typos that are easily corrected, while other times I
    have just gotten a bunch of nonsense. So bottom line, I think, is that if
    you have good originals, you should be all right. I have an Epson 1240U
    scanner. Hope that helps.
