I have a friend who has a book written by his mother-- it’s her autobiography, and it comprises 600 typed pages. Currently it’s bound, similar to the way theses and dissertations are bound (don’t know what that’s called). He wants to turn this into an e-book to preserve it and share with the family. This will necessitate taking it apart and scanning all the pages, and we both feel this would best be handled by a service bureau of some kind. (He has three originals, so one can cut apart for scanning.)
We googled “document scanning” and came up with some options, but I was wondering if any dopers know of a place that will do this. My friend knows this won’t be cheap, so he’s not trying to low-ball it. He just wants it done competently. Doesn’t have to be in Texas.
I don’t know if there’s a policy here about recommending specific businesses, so anyone is welcome to PM me.
Any tips and pointers also welcome.
There’s no particular rush, but my friend is mid-70’s in age and has Parkinson’s… so he wants to get this show on the road soon. Thanks.
