Big issue here is what platform this should be OCR'd into
The proof reading of OCR'd text, we already have that lined up fairly inexpensively.
Doesn't have to be platform-specific. Proofreading can even be done online. Plain text (.txt) is also platform-independent. Just make sure everyone is using the same file encoding or you will end up in a horrendous mess.
:: peering into crystal ball ::
Filipino readers who are accustomed to Roman script but don't know English, so they will be matching character-for-character without the brain silently correcting typos and/or scannos.
Since its a magazine we need a package which can scan the documents into an editable form while leaving the images intact and in the same page location as the original.
The proof-reading is being handled by some local USA based college students.
there is no cheap way to get so much content online (nearly 20 years worth) in a very secure environment.
