Old Maytag Service Manual - OCR
« on: May 04, 2008, 10:26:51 AM »
Here is a copy of the Maytag Dependable Care Washer pdf manual after it's been run thought a OCR program.

The OCR (Optical Character Recognition) not only makes the text searchable in your pdf reader, but also reduced the files size from 14.359Mb to 8.598 Mb.  O0

Wow, just about half the size!
It's also nice being able to use the search option in the pdf reader now, thanks!

Why don't maytag do this to start with?

Good question.

Maybe there was no OCR programs when they did that manual.

From what I understand at this point about pdf files that service manual was nothing more then scanned pages of the paper copy until I run it through the OCR program.

They sure could run it through a OCR program now, like I did. :)
