I do not know if scanner problems come within the topics covered here but I can ask!
I have been using a Mustek 1248UB scanner to read text on the back insert of CDs and the result is not perfect. There are several letters which are mis-read and I wonder why this is. I have downloaded the latest drivers which has improved the result a bit, but it is still making errors of recognition. I am using this particular scanner, which is a few years old, as my two latest Epson scanners, used for digitising my photo collection, seem to be directed more towards PDF, printer or e-mail output. I feel they should have an OCR capability but cannot find it on them. I need the OCR function for internet use and wonder how best to overcome this problem without having to edit the scanned text as I am reduced to at present.
Any guidance on how I can deal with this would be much appreciated.
