Quality OCR of books

I want to convert many books to clean plain text. I will provide PDF scans and you will use an OCR package to convert each book into a clean text file. You will proofread the text and iron out any errors.

I have dozens of books will pay out on completion of each book pro-rated by number of pages in the book. Please provide a bid representing 500 pages of work. Also give me an estimate of how many pages you think you can process each day.

If you need an example PDF, let me know, I'll send you a link in a PM.

* Fix OCR spelling errors

* Convert to plain UTF-8 text (not MS-Word, actual text)

* Remove page breaks and replace them with a custom html tag <p#>

* Fix open and closed quotes to use correct smart-quote characters

* Minor other corrections

Skills: OCR, Word Processing
