    sorry, don't know much about this but....

    Does XP Home offer a way to correct and resave the OCR data in a scanned
    TIFF file when using
    MS Office XP Document Imaging.

    When I open an OCR'd TIFF in Word and correct the errors I'd like to resave
    the corrected data in the TIFF. Is there any way to do this?

    thanks
    rj.

    TIFF is an "image" file. It has no concept of "corrections. You may edit
    the image, or "print" the document to an image file or paper and scan it
    back to an image.

    all OCR programs I know, let you correct text BEFORE saving into any
    file format. Microsoft included limited version of Imaging (licence
    from Kodak). you can get/buy a full version 2.6 of Imaging able to do
    OCR. To turn text into TIFF, use print function - to fax. Faxes use
    bitmap tiffs (CCIR). Preferably let FineReader/Omnipage or whatever to
    save in searchable pdf file, which retains full image and a text.
