I am scanning book pages in order to run them through OCR (I use ABBYY FineReader)
how should I save the files -- jpeg or tiff?
and at what dpi?
It is text only, not printed very clearly. (old book, before digital era)

I am using the native windows fax and scan tool
my "scanner" is an HP Officejet Pro 4-in-1

Government and Law (As in Lawyers), possibly libraries as well, tend to stick with TIFF format. If this is not being used with any of them, I would stick with JPEG.
