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

    Try the following:
    • Make sure the document lies straight on the scanner glass.
    • In Office Mode or Home Mode, select the Text Enhancement check box.
    • Adjust the Threshold setting.
      • Office Mode or Home Mode: Select Black & White as the Image Type setting. Then try adjusting the Threshold setting.

        Professional Mode: Click the + (Windows) or (Mac OS X) button next to Image Type and select the appropriate Image Option setting. See Converting Scanned Documents Into Editable Text for more information.
    • For small text, try selecting 400 as the Resolution setting.
    • Click Configuration, select the Preview tab, and select or deselect the Preview image rotation check box.
    • Check your OCR software manual to see if there are any settings you can adjust in your OCR software.
