I need help with scanning pleading documents - then using OCR.
Posted on 2006-06-18
Omni Page Pro 15 works really well on everything except pleading documents. Because of the vertical lines and numbers going down the page, it is necessary to cut out the the lines and numbers.
Having said that, do you know the best way to then move the remaining OCR'd text to Word?
I usually call up a blank pleading page and paste it in but it has lots of problems
If there is anyone that supports law firms and knows the best way I'd appreciate the help.
Also, these are faxed docs and I have the choice of scanning to PDF or Tiff. It used to be that it was easier to do OCR if the doc was in Tiff but I think there is less difference now. Which do you recommend?
These are files that are faxed to the law firm. They can be 50 pages - so too big to type in.
They are complicated in that the text is in outline format and they are on pleading paper.
Each page has a footer on the bottom with the name of the case, page number and a horizontal line.
Each page has a vertical line with numbers going down.
The first page, ofcourse, has a pleading caption.
I am looking for a proceedure to SMOOTHLY take it from the faxed, scanned in version, into Word.
