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 or on the document table.
    • Select the Text Enhancement check box.
    • Adjust the Threshold setting.
      • Office Mode: Select Black & White as the Image Type setting and then select the Image Adjustment tab. Then try adjusting the Threshold setting.
      • Home Mode: Select Black & White as the Image Type setting. Then try adjusting the Threshold setting.
      • Note: Home Mode can scan from the document glass only.
      • Professional Mode: Select Black & White as the Image Type setting. Then try adjusting the Threshold setting.
    • For small text, try selecting 400 as the Resolution setting.
    • Check your OCR software manual to see if there are any settings you can adjust in your OCR software.
