Uhhhh, no. But what I have in mind is to mount a wireless digital
camera on a hat or glasses or something, then have the digital signal
of each page go to a high powered computer and ASCIIize all the
text as someone flips thru a book.

Then we hire prisoners or retirees etc, to go thru libraries, wearing
the hat, page thru all the books... How about that? spike
