Free OCR (Author: kevin)
There is a government website that allows cheap (FREE!) OCR. Here are
- Scan a tiff at 300DPI.
- Run it through Photoshop's BRIGHTNESS +100% then CONTRAST +100%.
- Blur the image.
- Repeat the previous two steps between 2 and 5 times for maximum accuracy.
- Now save the image as a bitmap (that's right, 2 color only!!!)
- Upload it to http://docmorph.nlm.nih.gov/docmorph/
