We Scan your PDF

So, how do we convert your PDF? 95% of the time, after we try a few things, we end up running OCR software (Optical Character Recognition) on it. Yes, just like it is a print book. Believe it or not, this is faster and less expensive for you than if we use Adobe’s tools to “export to Word” or “export to HTML.” We try this, of course, on every book, to see if we can save the client money. But usually, OCR is the best way, and produces the cleanest Word output. 

Then we run comparison software which checks every single character in the output against every single character in your original PDF. Our accuracy is 99.95%, guaranteed. No conversion is ever 100%. This is one of the reasons that every client gets a review copy, to check. If we make errors in the conversion, we fix them at no charge to you. Our output format from the OCR is Word. We export that scanned Word File to HTML.   Then we export that file to HTML--and from that point, the process is the same as listed in the "From Word" section. Once the PDF has been OCR’ed and put into Word, we take that Word file and convert it to HTML. From that point forward, the process is identical to the process described for Word or other word-processed files as described here in the FAQ and Knowledgebase.

Holiday Closing Alert! Presidents' Day, 2020   

Happy Presidents' Day 2020! We're closed today, but back tomorrow.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, in 11 years now, we're going to be closed for Presidents' Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Sunday and Monday, February 16th and 17th, 2020.

No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, February 18th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
