             Subject: OCRing Latin?

    I'm talking to a doctoral candidate with a vision problem who
    is asking about scanning the Oxford Latin Dictionary, so she can
    use it. She already uses the CD version of the Oxford French,
    German, etc., but they don't have a CD Latin dictionary.

    Has anyone gotten good results scanning Latin, and if so, how?
    A decent spelling dictionary for Latin? What OCR program is best?

    Do you have any other suggestions for her?
