OCR Scanning Documents to Text (need list)
When electronic files are needed of a printed document, BCU has the
capability to scan printed text (pages) and can convert them into editable,
electronic files. We use an Epson Expression 16000 Scanner, and the software
OmniPage Professional 16.0 to convert such files. Files we can convert to text
through OCR include: tif, dpf, jpg, gif, png, and bmp. Please note, original
texts and files scan better and provide optimal quality (i.e. a copy of a copy
may be illegible).
The first page set up for an OCR scanned document costs $3.75. Additional OCR
pages cost $0.75 each.
Converting a PDF file to text costs $3.75 for the first page and $.25 for each
