Miracle Systems ACE CARD & TREY CARD MANUAL

Postby RWAP » Thu Nov 30, 2017 8:37 pm

I have come across a couple of manuals for the rare Ace Card and Trey Card by MIracle Systems.

Does anyone want this to scan in - it is only two sides of A4, but folded to form 8 pages of A6 which might make it awkward to scan in legibly - it might need to be blown up to A3 size before scanning?

Do you mean when unfolded its one A3 sheet?

If so I have an A3 scanner!

It is only currently an A4 sheet - but I think the text might be too small for accurate scanning.

I will send it to Derek first and we can take it from there...

Shame I don't recall ever having seen this hardware....

No way, the scanners of today are much higher resolution than the printers of the 80s :-D

I suppose the manual (if original) is not printed with a home printer but with typographic techniques.
Resizing it (with a copier?) before scanning would be ineffective; on the contrary it's important to use a good scanner correctly.
I offer to make post-scanning enhancements; please feel free to send me the scanned files if you consider this helpful :)

Hi,

I have scanned OCRed the scan and made a searchable A4 PDF.

I have emailed the PDF to Dilwyn for his web site.
