Font is Too Small

For optimal OCR results, scan documents printed in very small fonts at higher resolutions.

  1. Click the Scan button.
  2. In the dialog box, specify the desired resolution.
    Depending on which scanning interface is being used, either the ABBYY FineReader scanning dialog box or the scanner driver dialog box will open.
  3. Proceed to scan the document.

You may wish to compare the images of the same document obtained at different resolutions by opening them in the Zoom window in Pixel-to-Pixel mode (View>Zoom Window>Scale>Pixel-to-Pixel).

Source image Recommended resolution
300 dpi for typical texts (printed in fonts of size 10pt or larger)
