Does somebody know a bit what's the best format / compression to use when scanning mainly letters (black & white)?
Scanned documents are saved to disc (more pages in one document are possible), after that some will be OCR-ed.
I know that there's probably not one good answer, but I would like to start with something good (to test / demo), and perhaps to change afterwards.
Other advise / comments in this area are very welcome!
By the by, at the moment I'm developing with the ocx components I imported from Imaging for Windows.
I was thinking about using tiff, but there are some possible compression settings (Huff, packed, LWZ), are those all Tiff formats?
Thanks in advance,
