No idea why I'm still getting these emails, I'm pretty sure I unsubscribed years ago!

I would say that is certainly the case Doug. You'll need to send an
unsubscibe email - details will on this site somewhere, hopefully not buried
too deeply.

I wonder if anyone else will come out of the woodwork, not realising they've
been on this list for years without realising!

<tumbleweed>.....

Ian and Tim, thanks for your thoughts.

Originally they (the Access Centre we work for) used to send us hard copies
of the reports - of course we moaned and groaned about having to scan them
in and demanded digital formats. We then moaned and groaned about the
supersize tif files...but not quite so loudly - for fear of alienating our
paymaster - and now we are where we are. Be careful what you wish for, as
the adage goes..

I've thought on about R&WGold being 'clever' and OCR-ing text that is the
wrong way up (tho producing lots of errors in the process). Perhaps it is
actually a straightforward thing for an OCR program to look at text from all
angles and decipher it. Looking at a typical report - they are so full of
tabulated text and numerals and symbols, that maybe you'd get that many
errors even if the image file was the right way up.

BTW - are you guys both trainers? I work at Huddersfield University as a
trainer, but I'm gradually dipping my toe into the world of freelance
training. My timing could have been better perhaps..

Mike P
