Project Description

Author has a number of non fiction books (where the rights have reverted back to him) that he wants to convert into editable text. These hardcover books will be scanned and the text converted into an editable format using OCR software. Not concerned with high quality PDFs as these publications will be ultimately reformatted using eBook software such as iBooks Author or InDesign, but a high quality text file in terms of errors corrected and fidelity to the original copy. Automatic spell check for completed text files is acceptable, but would like additional manual copy check/proofread to make sure the file is error free. Book may be disassembled to facilitate scanning. First book is about 100 pages, please bid in per page increments.
