Kelly, You may not remember me, but I believe that you and I were in a support group together back in 1990 at BSA in Chicago. We can talk off list at

Love in Christ
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

I don't know, but it could easily be done if the jpg file were
downloaded onto a desktop computer and scanned by K1000. I have read
numerous CD liner notes this way.

I'm using Jaws and Thunderbird.

Can I extract it as a file, and then use Jaws to OCR IT?
