Daly from Waco, Texas is digitizing his family’s history. He has his dad’s journal, which is dated from 1958 to 1964. He also has his parents’ letters, along with slides they took as missionaries to Korea many decades ago.
He wants to preserve the content of the letters, but it’s difficult. Just think about it: Handwritten letters aren’t nearly as neat as typed letters. You have to deal with strikethroughs and misspellings, for example. To make a long story short: Daly needs good OCR software.
Not sure what that means? OCR stands for “Optical Character Recognition.” This tech pinpoints writing within a digital image. It’s super helpful when you’re scanning documents and images.
I told him to check out the Epson Scanner. This high-tech scanner converts text into data you can edit in a word processing program.
Not only is it great for letters, but it also works wonders for old photos. I would go so far as to say it’s the best way to preserve your priceless photos. Here’s why.
