woodynash 0 Posted March 8, 2011 Share Posted March 8, 2011 It would be great if someone would create a "cheat sheet" for optimizing my scanner's settings to help enhance my EN experience across multiple platforms. This would list the various document types (contracts, warranties, photographs, magazine articles, receipts, etc..) and what the ideal setting is for each. For instance, I have been scanning my documents to .pdf at 300 dpi, because I felt that would give the best results for OCR accuracy. Unfortunately, I have since realized that I cannot easy view .pdf files through the EN app on my iPhone 4, whereas it is simple to open and view .jpeg files. It then occurred to me that since EN can OCR text in my photos anyway, perhaps .jpeg is a better format for those documents I don't plan to forward to a 3rd party). Please, can someone tell me which format is best to scan my documents to (.pdf, .jpeg, .png)?Also, what is the minimum resolution I should scan to to ensure excellent OCR performance from EN?
