I'm scanning old law books from a Minolta PS-7000 using IrfanView software, then bringing them up on Adobe Acrobat 8 Standard for PDF files. I then did a text recognition, OCR and some of the pages are OK, but then I come across other pages that have text that is all grabbled with symbols and numbers instead of letters. I have a HP Pavilion 732 computer, with Windows XP. Can someone please give some direction on this problem? I have a lot of old statute books to scan.
