15.1   OCR on TCC scanners     (updated 4 April 2005)

From Mike Hogan, Wed Nov 3 23:46:08 2004

I was told the TCC computers with scanners could only scan using Adobe Photoshop and that they had no text recognition software. Tonight I was shown by a friend that you could scan using Adobe Acrobat and that it could decode the text as well.

To scan: File -> Create PDF -> From Scanner

To convert to text: Document -> Paper Capture -> Start Paper Capture

Just so you all know, it is possible and seems to work quite well.

More detailed instruction are at OCR How To.
