I got some documentation that I want to get "electrified".?
It is just plain text and some "line graphs, some bar graphs, pie charts and free hand charts. There are several tables as welll.
I had started and typed out the entire text. It is either in Word, or Text or in Open Office(or in all 3) on a 3.5" disk.

That covers all the words and some of the tables(I could sort of make a half decent table using the dashes and underlines and spacing.
The line graphs, bar graphs, pie charts and that stuff is more difficult to get accurate with a freehand drawing program.
I have a Lexmark scanner and I tried scanning, but find the file size for each page extremely large.
The same would hold true for the digital camera.
Where a page of type is perhaps 8kb, a scanned image is 500kb and a digital photo 5Mb.
I was expecting because of its simplicity it would all fit on a floppy.(for field trips).

Anybody got some idea of what kind of program or what settings I need to do this job?

I'd say scan it all and get yourself a thumb drive (SanDisk is pretty good)

Hello.
VVhenever I scan an image, I e-mail it to myself. It scales it dovvn a bit automatically. Try that; it should vvork for you. Once you have it in an e-mail, save it to your hard-drive or vvhere ever you prefer.

Hope that helps. Take it easy.
