It’s hot and humid here; so much so, that I can’t think straight. So I’ve been looking at the piles of photocopied articles and running them through my scanner and throwing away the photocopy. That’s a mindless activity I can do.
Not sure I’m quite there yet, tho. The PDF’s are OK, but they aren’t OCR’d. The scanner software has OCR, but it’s not good enough. Nor is the built-in OCR in Acrobat. The best still seems to be Finereader 9; but the PDF’s don’t go through FR9 unchanged. The images can look strange.
Not sure what to do about that. But I am gradually freeing up storage space.
