text displayed alongside the article image has been created through a process
called Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This is when a computer software

originally OCR'ed words, so that phrase searching and text highlighting will
continue to work on your corrected text. Hence, make you corrections line by
line, matching the lines of text in the page image.
