Glad the file came through. My computer skills are still rather
primitive, and I'm certain that others can give you a better answer. I
scanned the text with Adobe Photoshop CS, as if it were a photograph and
put it in a PDF format, so as far as I know, there is nothing in the
coding that can "recognize" the individual letters and words. In other
words, there is no way to translate the text into a wordprocessing
software. The only way I can think of for you to convert them to MS
Word is to print out the pages and rescan them as an OCR file. You will
need a scanner and OCR software to do this. I use OmniPage, which is
best one I know of, but I have seen trial versions of another product
(Iris, I think it is called) which you can download for free. But I
don't think it is nearly as accurate as OmniPage. Once you scan it, you
will need to carefully proof it for scanning errors. Actually, the
whole process sometimes takes almost as long as it would take you
tosimply re-type it.

Re: Voice PDF on the Peking foreword
Thanks -- got them -- now I am trying to translate them into WORD so I can
file them. No success even with QUICK VIEW.
Appreciated a lot.
Do you have them in MS DOS WORD ? It would help?
