I have already done so, it is not pretty and far from perfect.

My results using Adobe Acrobat 9 OCR is ~ 14 MB.

No OCR program can produce a perfect text search able index.

Humans need to look at the results and correct them.

That is a huge job.

I have assembled perhaps better results using other Rainbow scans.

About 20 hours plus invested so far, if it was just using that one huge file
the job would be done.

I scanned 1991 at 1200 DPI 8 Level Gray scale and using Adobe Acrobat 9 got
the attached. (Sent to Luis only)

Far from perfect.
