Digitizing books

  1. 1. Digitizing books 1 STEPS, HINTS, VIDEOS
  2. 2. What is the digitization? 2  Digitization is the process of converting information into a digital format. In this format, information is organized into discrete units of data that can be separately addressed. This is the binary data that computers and many devices with computing capacity can process.  http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/0,,sid9_g ci896692,00.html  See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digitizing
  3. 3. Steps of digitization 3  1. Choose the book you want to digitize.  2. Choose an OCR software (GO!)  3. Scan your book (Choose the devise. Scanner,      compact device, digital camera, IRIScan) (GO!) 4. Optical Character Recognition (image) 5. Correction (image1) (image2) 6. Save as a text searchable PDF document See another versions: http://www.inquisition.ca/en/info/artic/comment_ numeriser.htm http://dlg.galileo.usg.edu/guide.html#01
  4. 4. Text and images 4  Text and images can be digitized similarly: a scanner captures an image (which may be an image of text) and converts it to an image file, such as a bitmap. An optical character recognition (OCR) program analyzes a text image for light and dark areas in order to identify each alphabetic letter or numeric digit, and converts each character into an ASCII code.
  5. 5. Choose an OCR software 5  There are a lot of softwares to digitize your     documents. On Wikipedia there is comparison list of optical character recognition softwares. Check it out! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_optical_chara cter_recognition_software (I recommend you the ABBYY FineReader.) If you don’t want to buy (or download) a software, here’s a free online OCR: http://www.newocr.com/
  6. 6. What is OCR? 6  OCR (optical character recognition) is the recognition of printed or written text characters by a computer. This involves photoscanning of the text character-by-character, analysis of the scanned-in image, and then translation of the character image into character codes, such as ASCII, commonly used in data processing.  http://searchciomidmarket.techtarget.com/definition/OCR  Read more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optical_character_r ecognition
  7. 7. What is ASCII? 7  ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is the most common format for text files in computers and on the Internet. In an ASCII file, each alphabetic, numeric, or special character is represented with a 7-bit binary number (a string of seven 0s or 1s). 128 possible characters are defined.  In: http://searchciomidmarket.techtarget.com/definition/ASCII
