I had very different results, but I was using their hardware solutions and
that resulted in fairly dramatic increases in scanning spead because we were
using dedicated hardware to do the scanning. Dollars for benefit may be
better achieve by a top of the line computer with the RAM maximized

Ditto to the others who said they never got it to work, even after three
hours on the phone with tech support-and the one time it seemed to be
working, the results were inferior. It is not on my recommended list.

Good morning,

Is any one using VRS (Virtual ReScan) software as a tool in their text
conversion process? We are thinking of incorporating this software into our
system. We use a variety of methods to convert materials but are looking to
improve the accuracy of the OCR process prior to editing, thus improving our
efficiency. We currently use a high speed Panasonic duplex scanner and Abby
for our OCR. My understanding is that VRS will provide a cleaner, more
accurate image prior to OCR.
