About Michael Campbell

  1. I'm looking for something which can store directly to evernote, or easily migrate to evernote, a meeting minutes recorder. Basically, something that will *record* the audio of a meeting (not from Skype, or a phone, or anything, just raw audio), with minute markers, which will allow me to type in annotations that are "keyed" to the time. So if I type in an annotation of "follow up with Jill" for example, that annotation will be kept with minute 5:10 or wherever it occurred. Does such a thing exist?
  2. In theory, yes, but Evernote cautions specifically against this due to both it and Dropbox possibly trying to sync things at the same time causing corruption.
  3. https://plus.google.com/112364132652438722780/posts/ECgjcJ2Mv6Y Been a big fan of Rafe's for a few years now. He's hinting at something big happening here on Evernote...
  4. Yeah, that would "backups" =) Don't misread me; I don't fear the cloud whatsoever. I'm probably more cloud-ed than a good many people, but in no way am I not also backing up the data I want to make sure I can't afford to lose, no matter where I put it.
  5. What advantage does that give you, if I may ask? Particularly going forward, when you only get 1 bill for a vendor at a time; are you planning on continuing along this path and deal with the merging of many notes/pdf's into one every 3 years (or however long), or was this a one time "get all my old stuff scanned" deal that you don't plan on continuing?
  6. > being cloud based so I never have to worry about backups This is a dangerous mindset. No matter who you pay, or how much, or how often, the only one responsible for your data is *you*. Does it matter if you can sue a company for losing some precious piece of data if the data is unrecoverable, no matter what the cost? Best of luck to you in any case.
  7. I always OCR with scansnap before sending to Evernote.
  8. Which says "Yes, in a few days", and "It hasn't happened after 2 weeks". I hope that's just a big backlog at their servers... =\
  9. Not sure quite how to search for this... I suspect the answer is "yes", but when one upgrades to premium, will Evernote OCR already uploaded documents, or is that only for documents uploaded after one has gone Premium?
  10. How do you scan a book that's too big to fit in scansnap? (Or do you just load it up; the SS scans from the bottom of the stack, so you could in theory have a stack of paper almost limitless in size...) And do you scan to Evernote directly, or to a "Searchable PDF"? feed in twenty pages or so at a time. repeat until finished. evernote does not do ocr on pdf files over 100 pages / 25mb or larger, so if you want the content to be searchable (why note?), then i would do ocr on it before putting it into evernote. an added benefit to this on the mac is that search results will also show up in spotlight searches. https://support.ever...#38;docID=12656 i ocr pretty much everything before putting it into evernote. Thanks; I OCR anything that goes through SS for sure. I've never had an occasion to do more than 1 scan and merge them, so just wondered how that worked. I'll try it later today; I'm eyeing some books I really don't need physical hardcopy of, but don't necessarily want to throw out either.

  12. I use both Calibre and Evernote, but not together. For me, putting Calibre's library into Dropbox has worked well; I have the stuff I want in my e-reader (a nook, in my case), and it's replicated across my various machines AND the cloud in case of machine loss.
  13. Wow, mine cost ~$400... ;-) (Yes, I know what you mean.)
  14. It happens, but not very often, and generally (for me, anyway), ONLY when the backside is blank. If there's text on both sides, I don't think I've ever gotten bleedthrough from one side to the other so bad that it affected the OCR of the "real" text on that side. In short, not enough to worry about. I have the 1500 ScanSnap.
  15. This was the magic nugget... thanks. When I bought my ScanSnap it came with an Adobe product which will OCR also, but I've not yet tried it out fully. I know it can work, but I haven't tried saving the results to see if it embeds the OCR'd info in the pdf or not.
