[Athen] Kurzweil Question

One other thought. If the file is not coming in cleaning just by going to
File > Open in Kurzweil, you could try using the KESI Virtual Printer from
Adobe Acrobat Pro. Using the virtual printer can make a huge difference. In
fact, the virtual printer is one of the unsung heroes of Kurzweil. Any file
that you can open, you can take into Kurzweil using the virtual printer.
(The virtual printer is in the drop-down list of your printer choices.)

The file quality does not actually look too bad other than the printers
marks which could easily be cropped out in Adobe Acrobat. Once this is done
the best way to process it would be to bring it directly into Kzy. If most
of the book is this simply structured the zoning should be straightforward.

Hello all,

I received a file from Pearson through ATN. The file print quality/format
is in very bad shape (disconnected text, varying sizes, compressed words,
etc). I did request a better copy but alas this is all they have. I don't
really have the capability to scan (I could but it would be one page at a
time) so I'm drudging through it in Kurzweil and zone editing the underlying
text. Does anyone have any suggestions on a different way to do this? I am
the only one in my office who handles this stuff. This is the first time
I've gotten a file in such bad shape. It is every page. I've attached one
page as an example of the issue.

Thanks in advance,
