Grrrrr....

How the hell can a 1966 paperback be harder to scan and OCR than any of the Victorian books I've done? So far I'm averaging 2-3 errors a line on test runs, and nothing I try is improving things much. Time to look for another edition, I fear...

Later: Turns out that using my old scanner and computer it works fine - except that OCR is a bit on the slow side. I can live with that - just watched Buffy episode 1 while scanning the first chapter, I'll work my way through the next few chapters during the Dr. Who Night thing.
