Scanning equipment

Documents that are not already in a word processing or other electronic format that can be converted to PDF (e.g., pages of the record on appeal and exhibits) must be scanned. CM/ECF users must ensure they purchase scanning hardware and software that allow a document to be text searchable when it has been scanned into a PDF. The more technical term for "text searchable" is "Optical Character Recognition (OCR)." If an ECF user outsources scanning to a third party, the CM/ECF user must ensure the third party scans all documents into a PDF that utilizes OCR.

 

Scanners must be set to scan a document at least at 300 dpi.
