We’re starting to post in our blog a series of stories from our customers, where they share how FineReader can help in everyday work and life.
And here is our first interviewee – Marissa Warthman from UK, who helps her husband organize his paper materials in a home library to use them productively in his teaching and research.
Do I work with documents in my job?
— I don’t personally work with documents, at least not as often as my husband
does — he teaches history at a college and he always use different paper resources
such as magazines to prepare materials and to build his own knowledge
base. He likes to have lots of papers and articles around him. I am the technical
whiz in our family who is responsible for making a personal digital library of my
husband materials, because it’s much easier to keep an archive that you can
search through in a digital format.
How often do I obtain documents via scanner?
— Several times a month I guess. All of the documents that are going to be put in
our history library are scanned.
FineReader helped me…
— My husband needs to have a digital copy of every document in his library, and
each copy needs to be as close as possible to the original and its content
must be searchable. FineReader is an essential tool in our family for digitizing.
It is very important that the digital copy looks exactly like the original.
I normally scan black and white instead of color because it’s faster and requires
less memory to store.
What document format do I prefer?
— PDF, of course. Because this format retains the layout of the paper document
for quoting in my husband’s research and allows you to easily change both the
document structure and page content itself.
