Reading Poor Copies of Documents

January 15, 2010

A woman reading a document.Reading dark documents? Having trouble transcribing them because they or their copy is either "muddy", the ink has bled through, or the writing is faint? Use a black light.

If you can get a Xerox copy, use yellow high-lighter on the problem letters/words and then use a black light; highlighting the word helps the black light to work even better. Do not do highlight an original, just use the black light on it.

This works on over 90% of all copies, I can't say the percentage of documents. I haven't had the luxury of handling originals, beyond newer vital records. With the use of a black light ($10.00 from a company who sells through Amazon), my eyestrain is over.

Thank you! I suffer from eyestrain, so that will be a godsend for me.
