Life’s little difficulties are leaching time and energy at the moment. But I’m still pressing on. This evening I went through the pages of Festugiere’s French translation of Porphyry’s Ad Gaurum, correcting OCR errors. I then exported the result to Word, or at least I think I did. Abbyy Finereader 10 managed to write a file that crashed Word! (They’ve been writing .doc files for 10 years, so why does version 10 suddenly have problems?)
I also want a PDF of the pages. Finereader 10 produced an abomination — their PDF save just does not work. So I went into the working directory, to find that the images are now in some non-standard format. Fortunately I scanned the pages in FR9. This produces .tif files — but Adobe Acrobat refused to read these. I ended up exporting the files from FR9 to .png format, which I will then combine. The results are a bit bulky, but that is not that important really.
And that’s all I have time for this evening folks!
