Scanning music books

Post by Frederik » 22 Jun 2018, 13:15

Dear all,

What is my goal?
I have a huge library of music scores.
The scores printed on A4 are already scanned through a Brother ADS-2100
This works very well.
============

The books are another problem.
I have an Iphone and Ipad pro.

This is my plan:

Scan a book - format max. A3 - with Phone or Pad
(I’ll build a construction for scanning.)

The software splits the pages vertically AND sorts them in the right order.

Option1: fingers left and right are deleted.
Option2: curving of the pages is corrected
OCR is not needed.

=========

Is there any software solution?
What is your experience with Bookscanner & Office Lens (both Mac app store)?
I found the perfect application: Booksorber, but this doesn’t seem to respond any more for several years
and it refuses to run on mac (despite the needed installation of Java).

=====

Thanks for your useful advise,

Frederik

The software solution for splitting pages and cleaning shadows and so, is Scan Tailor.

The software solution for musical OCR is capella Scan -- see www.capella-software.com
