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

    If characters in your scanned images are not recognized during OCR conversion, try these solutions:

    • Make sure your original is straight.
    • Adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try scanning again:
      • Select Text Enhancement
      • Select the correct Image Type setting
      • Adjust the Threshold setting
    • Set the scanning resolution between 200 and 600 dpi.
    • If you are using OCR software, check the manual for any additional adjustments.
