  1. This is probably a strange request, but I want to disable text recognition in images. I'm using a notebook in Evernote for scans of index cards, but the text recognition is giving me so many false positives (particularly when I search for rare terms) that it's getting really frustrating. Is this an option? If so, how? **** More details for the curious or in case it's relevant: Every article I read that I think may be useful in the future gets an index card, with its citation and a summary of the most relevant findings/protocols/approaches, along with keywords written on the back. These are scanned into Evernote as individual notes and then kept in a card file by first author. The note in Evernote gets updated with the title as the citation (sans title) and the body containing the title and keywords. When I want to find a reference but can't remember the first authors' name, I can search for the appropriate keywords, likely title text, or an oddball word I remember was associated with the paper. I also use keyword searches to look for all papers I have that could be relevant to that concept and just skim through them to find the appropriate one. Example false-positives below. FWIW, my handwriting isn't great and has some quirks, but it's usually fairly easily read by other humans. Search text: "review" False hits: “Prevalence of”, “the view”, “recombination”, “mutant”, “remainder” Search text: "local" False hits: “could”, “(2007)”, “loci that” Search text: "spatial" False hits: “teacher survey”, “speciation"
