This is really quite simple, at least this part. Please go either to the Electronic Text Center in Alderman, or to The Multimedia Center in Clemons.. Ask to see the documentation on Omnipage Pro 5.0 and read it; this will take a couple of hours.
Next, go back to the course syllabus and note the assigned readings that are marked(R). This is a bundle of xeroxed articles placed on reserve in Clemons Library. You should select the article(s) you want to work with for your scanning project by initialing the article on the index attatched to the cover of each bundle. Your job is to convert these print texts into digital texts by scanning them, saving them as Caere (.met), reloading them (as .met files), processing through the Optical Character Reader (OCR), and then saving them as ASCII text files (.txt).
This is not brain surgery, but it isn't just running a xerox machine either. Plan ahead! 1) Each
article is due in my hands (via eMail or on disk placed in my mailbox) Friday noon of the week
before it is to be read by the class
I also want to learn to scan images and manipulate them in Image Assistant.the graphics application that comes with OmiPage Find a graphic you would like to use as the image on your own home page: scan it at 100 dots per inch (dpi); it should be nore more than 200 pixels by 200 pixels; it should be saved in .gif format.
All of this should be a good deal clearer once you've read through the documentation.
