I recently purchased a new copy of Adobe Acrobat. It does a better job converting old documents. They look better and the underlying text has fewer OCR errors.
I decided to rescan some of the large books. I am working on ICCF-5. When I prepared this book I retyped several papers from scratch and added them to the Acrobat file. There are no errors and they are easy to read. One of them is Savvatimova, p. 213:
Unfortunately, there is a table on p. 217 that was very poorly reproduced. I can hardly read it. Perhaps someone with sharper eyes or better knowledge of secondary ion mass spectroscopy can make out what it says. Attached is a 300 dpi color scan of the table, and a temporary version of it that I typed into Microsoft Word. I have put question marks in the fields I cannot read: ?-1, ?-2, ?-3 . . . If you can read one of them, please contact me with a note such as:
?-23 should be 78
I have added temporary coordinates on the right side and bottom. If you find a field that you think I read incorrectly, send me a message such as:
C12 should be "<38"
. . .
Here is an example of improved underlying text, from page 181:
At the first annual conference on cold fusioni, the authors had reported
the results of multiplicity distribution analysis of neutron counts obt ained from a
commercial Milton Roy elect rolytic cell operated with 5M N aO D .
At the first annual conference on cold fusion1, the authors had reported
the results of multiplicity distribution analysis of neutron counts obtained from a
commercial Milton Roy electrolytic cell operated with SM NaOD.
[The newer version has one new mistake: the OCR read "5M" as "SM."]
