CAT tools are only any good if the source text is a writeable file. In the case of source text as a PDF or faxed text, it is essential to have an excellent scanner. Mine, which came bundled with the PC, and which I use with Omnipage OCR (quite a good package)is about OK for clear text, but on a third generation fax, even gray-scale scanning turns up too many mistakes. I guess the resolution of the scanner itself is what counts. What are readers\' recommendations for the best scanning performance?

You can upgrade to OmniPage Pro 11 (I found it for $125 Canadian, which is around $100 US). I scanned an 88-page French document in no time so that I could use my CAT tool to translate it.
OP Pro also extracts the text from PDF files. I haven\'t tested this function yet, but a colleague did a couple of files for me before I bought the software and it did a great job.
