The product is not recognizing characters well when using Epson Scan. What should I do?

    Try the following:
    • Make sure the document lies perfectly straight in the input tray.
    • Select the Text Enhancement check box.
    • Adjust the Threshold setting. Select Black & White as the Image Type setting. Then try adjusting the Threshold setting. See Converting Scanned Documents Into Editable Text for instructions.
    • Check your OCR software manual to see if there are any settings you can adjust in your OCR software.
