Presented are two technologies, character recognition and information retrieval, that are used for text processing. Character recognition translates text image data to a computer-coded format; information retrieval stores these data and provides efficient access to the text. The necessity of their eventual coupling is obvious. Their sequential application though (with no manual intervention) has been considered impractical at best. Our experimentation exploits these two technologies in just this way. We identify problems with their combined use, as well as show that the technologies have come to a point where they can be applied in succession.
