Hi, I have been trying to convert an old booklet by scanning and using OCR, in order to make it part of a website.
I ran into the Miore' effect on the photos when they are scanned. This effect causes big hash patterns to appear, and blotches to appear because of the way the page was created, the dot patterns don't scan well.
Is there a scanner, or a software product which has an effective Miore' filter to make this task easier??

OCR can work on any Scanner, I Believe that the Software is what converts to OCR. I Have A CanoScan N659U. Using Microsoft Office Document Imaging software scanned 150 sheets of genealogy that I do not have to retype. OCR has been around sense about 1928 however, not until about 1974 was the principal used with Flatbed scanners. They do have a few Open source OCR scanning software's available, and they have serval online OCR services. I Prefer the MicroSoft Office 2007 Document Imaging Software myself.
The function to do OCR scanning will be part of whatever scanning software you are using with this printer. Probably some scanning software came with the printer. If it doesn't have OCR capability , you'll have to use some third-party software. Just Google OCR software.
you need to have ocr software to convert the text from a scanned image to readable text. try going to microsoft office website and downloading the software. can also try the scanner manufacturers website for it.
Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text.
These can be scanned in a word processor or other programs, then can be modified.It is software usually include with your Printer/Scanner
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.
OCR stands for "optical character recognition." It is the software your scanner uses to convert a scanned image into a text file. In order to scan into Word or Notepad or any other program where you can edit text, you will need OCR software.
If your Dell 924 can use OCR, this software should be included on the CD that came with your printer. Insert the CD and run Setup or try to find a folder labeled OCR. If you can't find any OCR files on your installation disk then check the Dell website:
Scanners put a graphic image on your computer that is a "picture" as far as the computer is concerned and therefore, you cannot edit text because it is seen as pixels and not characters. In order to make a scanned document editable, you'll need to use the OCR function in your software (Optical Character Recognition). This is assuming your printer came with OCR software, if not, you'll need to purchase an OCR software package in order to convert images into editable documents. You should be able to find such packages for less than $50.00. Check your documentation (and help files) and look for OCR in the index or search the help files for OCR to see if such software came with your printer software package.
Sometimes companies only support only the basic drivers. The OCR software is on the CD (s) that came with the printer. Suggestion. Try to order the original CD from Lexmark., or search Ebay for programs that have OCR capability. You can use OCR programs from other vendors as long as they are stand-a-lone programs. Just make sure you have the original disc so as not to infringe on copyright privileges.
Note: you can buy OCR programs. Check Ebay and Amazon. They are usually better that the programs that come on the OEM disk.
Most of the time a scanner by default, will scan a document in a tif or other image file format. That means that the scanned image is actually very similar to a photograph. In order to edit the text, you first have to convert the image using something that's called OCR software. OCR is a process that the software uses to look at a scanned document image and determine what characters are on the page. It's not always very accurate but that depends on the quality of the scan and on the OCR software being used. You must have received some sort of scanning software with the scanner. Hopefully it containes some sort of OCR software. Some scanners will save you this extra image manipulation by having a setting that allows you to scan directly to a word document. Usually in that configuration, the OCR software automatically knows to convert the scanned document image in order to automate the process. But either way, you first have to install the manufacturer's software. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
This is a function of the optical character recognition (ocr) software, not the scanner. Most scanners have bundled software that include ocr and retail ocr software is available. Good quality originals are necessary to minimize the amount of manual corrections and the ease of making those corrections is what you want in the ocr program or you end up better off retyping a document if 100% accuracy is required. Graphics are a consideration when scanning mixed documents so don't rule out cutting and pasting those separately if necessary in Word. Take the time to master the software if this is a common task for you keeping in mind that better software usually merits the extra cost if it saves you time. Don't neglect the scanner settings for resolution as the software works only as well as what you present it to recognize. A Google search on scanning will help you on specific tasks as there are whole books on this subject. ~Steve Medley
i believe this is called OCR scanning, character recognition so that the text can be edited in text editors. I have not used works to know if it has a text capture feature but I'm aware of scanning software that offer OCR capabilities, i used to have that on my old scanner, i do not remember the name of the software but here's what google turned up for OCR scanning: http://www.google.ca/search?q=OCR+scanning&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
