If you're going to PDF it, no need for the manual typing routine. Adobe
Acrobat has a OCR facility that should be mostly fine for typeface stuff
like this, manual labor would be better put into proof reading the final
PDF. I have Acrobat 5 at my work machine, so as soon as all the JPEGs are
done, I could convert it to a PDF. One caveat though- we switched to
Acrobat 5 from 3, and the OCRing facilities got really crappy in Acro 5.
I've not been able to get 3 and 5 to co exist, but when I get the chance,
I could install Acro 3 on a machine with no Acrobat.
Just let me know when they're all done, and try to rotate them so they're
level, crop out page-outlines- makes the OCR go better and the final PDF
look a lot nicer.
