transcribing from Jpeg to Word need to have 2 programs open



I am transcribing from a JPEG into a Word Doc. how do i have them working as
a split screen so i can read from one and work on the Word one? I find it
very clumsy to have to keep clicking on the JPEG, read what i have to type
next and then type it. Its quite a long doc to transcribe. Any help would be

Easiest method: Use a split screen and keep both up at the same time.

Not as easy method:
Open Paint
Open your .jpg file.
Save it as a .tif. Close file.
Open Microsoft Document Imaging
Open your .tif file
Click on the icon that looks like a piece of paper and a blue W.
This will attempt to "read" the text. You MUST proof-read very carefully.
The worse the .jpg, the worse the conversion will be. 1's look like I's, O's
like 0's, And those are the easy ones to spot.

Windows have three states: maximized, minimized, and restored. This is
controlled using the _ and box icons in the upper right corner of the
window. If you see two overlapping boxes, the window is maximized. If you
see a single box, the window is in the "restored" state and can be resized.
You can drag the sides & corners to resize any non-maximized program window
as desired.


I hate to be retro, but the easiest way to do this is to open the JPEG, hit
Ctrl-P, and then pick up the hard copy off your printer and set it on your
document stand next to the computer. Then read from the hard copy and type.
