    How do you mean, convert them to text?

    If so, I don't have the time.

    If so, I don't have the time.
    I photograph Congressional documents and feed them to my OCR program. They come out the other end as HTML files. A little tweaking and they're searchable.

    Yes, I thought you meant by OCR. Unfortunately, as I say, I don't have the time to do this. What I've upload is only a fraction of the material I have on my HDD.

    If anyone else wants to have a go with what I've posted, by all means.

    Glad the material is of interest.

    Nice one.

    If you put the name of the regt in the text of the thread would they show up if a search was done on the site for that regt?

    Regards
