OK we are in a pickle…
We needed a large scanner at a reasonable price.
We needed to be able to print 11×17 stuff sometimes
The solve – Got a new HP 7610 scanner monster printer only $199
BUT…… Wonderful but… no DESCREEN when scanning photos from magazines and newspapers…
Now when we use you little c8180 scanner printer faxer thing it had a descreen button
Yes I have tried VUSCAN … but the internal OCR is not as good as even the chap iris I used with the little HP c8180
One of the things we go is scan pages to pdfs…. with embedded text in the background for search and for goggle to find them… we want the photos to look nice and not blotchy… but darn it… want some good ocr
for instance we are scanning DEAF ROCHESTER NEWS … one issue goes into one PDF file… has to have nice graphical representation in the PDF file… BUT also have to have all the text ocr’ed in the background… (like the books and stuff over at ARCHIVE.ORG)
Thanks in advance!

Can you scan through Vuscan for the descreening, and then open the image in whatever program has the better OCR to take care of that part of the process?

well in round about way.. woud have to vuscan the pages then switch over and ocr scan something then tte the pdf file with graphics made by vuscan and kludege the text in from all the ocr wotk … what woud be more efficent is if we hang someone by their toes over at HP untill they put in the descreen button <grin>

Aside from this issue, how is this printer? We had an HP7000 which we loved but will be upgrading this year, and wondering if the printer is as good with all those bells and whistles as the 7000.

Allison, the printer it is wonderful! the scanner is good too….but it seems some dolt at HP forgot to put descreen in the newser versions of the scanner software or so someone on the support line told me.
I am almost upset to land on the doorstep of 3000 hannover st….

Photoshop and scripts can do the work. You can batch process: filter -> noise -> descreen.

José yes, that is fine for one at a time things… but I have ‘toy scanner a c8180 all in one and it has the descreen built in aand i do not have to go outside the scanning process….
I played with demo finereader by abbyy but that did not add any descreen to the hp7610…
Now if I use vuscan I can set it to read stuff with dot patterns but the internal ocr is really acking even c0mpared to readiris….. actully the readiris tht cam fro free with these things does pretty well .. it is not even the 14 version.
I think wht needs to be done is the officejet development team needs a wakeup call on this.
why do not I use the c8180? heh no doc feeder! and the 7610 has doc feeder
