Windows 7: I need the best OCR software money can buy

This might surprise you but from what I know so far he's being doing it this way for over 30yrs (handwriting it and having his assistant type it up in Word). His assistant told me in the early years his handwriting wasn't so bad but I guess with age legibility has declined, dramatically, to the point his assistant can't stand it anymore and now wants him to learn how to use a computer, which I highly doubt he's willing at his age. The main problem is HE doesn't think his handwriting ability as diminished because it's been declining at such a slow rate he still thinks his writing ability is the same as it was 30yrs ago. I'm better off convincing a chimp.

After having tried the truth, it might be best for the assistant to say that s/he can no longer read this lawyer's handwriting, blame declining eyesight and retire :-)

Then see how the next assistance handles things.

That's the whole reason their office contacted me was because the assistant time and time again stated she's getting old and can no longer read his writing and hopes to find a software solution. I believe he's going to hold me to that. Worse case scenario, $2000 refund.

That was one of my first recommendations but he's adamant on doing it his old fashion way.

ah well,

i understand his reluctance however as a lawyer then one would have thought he would have the intelligence to see that change is needed.

im surprised he is still working at 70 and a lawyer,he should have been retired and golfing most days for the last 20 years.

sounds like he's the boss and calls all the shots.

Yeah he's his own boss and continue to practice because he loves his job, but calling me on a Sunday and giving me a ear full while throwing his weight around is not how I'd expect a lawyer to conduct himself.

Sounds to me you would be wise to cut your losses and bail on the bozo.

No, the worst case scenario would be for him to demand a refund and also charge you his rates for the time spent interacting with you... his time and his assistant's time :-(

Would it help if no contract or agreement was signed prior to work performed? Everything was done through verbal agreements.
