To save your books quickly and easily, I'd suggest scanning the pages in as
graphics rather than using OCR programs. Unless the capacity to alter the
text in some way is apt to be needed, using OCR programs requires that one
proofread the product, and correct whatever was not correctly READ by the
program. I have done both techniques. Scanning text as a graphic is, though
just as tedious, faster. Ann Byrne (editorann@AOL.com)
