Chapter 3: Proofreading a Document
What is Proofreading?
Once we have OCR'd a document, we need to proofread, or proof
for short. When we proof a document, we check each letter, number, word,
punctuation mark, symbol and so forth to be sure it matches exactly with the
corresponding character in the printed document.
Proofing a document requires concentration and patience to
check each and every image, paragraph, sentence, word and so on to ensure they
exactly match the same image, paragraph, sentence, word, and so forth in the
We strive for 99.95% accuracy with the printed
document, so you should proof each document very carefully both during
OCR'ing and during markup.
