Project Description


I have 3000 pages of emails(or about 120,000-140,000 emails) which I need transcribed into a text file. All these emails are printed and should be very readable. Some of the pages are slightly skewed but again this should be no problem unless you're using OCR. You will receive these scanned pages as a series of PDFs.

Accuracy is the most important aspect of this job. I have tried OCR on these emails with poor results, I would like all of them manually transcribed by a human.

Emails are in a standard format and printed, so I expect this job can be completed quickly and accurately for $300-$500.

Send me your bids, timeframe, and any questions you might have. I have attached a sample of one PDF.
