This is the raw OCR of a pdf. This could be pumped and dumped into a module, but it would be terrible. This text is not fit to be used. If someone had a lot of time on their hands, they should start the OCR process over in Abby Finereader to synchronize the OCR errors with the original PDF for corrections. But if you were going to do that, it would save hundreds hours to do a better scan of the original document at a higher resolution. It would be an unbelievably large project, although a great, high quality scan of the book would afford a much cleaner OCR process.

Josh, I am happy to hear you say this. Sometimes it's best not to make a module if the text is bad. For too long in the Bible community, volunteer module makers have had an anything-goes mentality. The focus has been on uploading a module instead of quality. The consequences have pushed people toward paid software and really hurt the free Bible community's reputation.

I like what you're trying to do and I just want to say "this is the right direction"! Keep setting the standards, brother. We all thank you.
