PDF SearchThis CD-ROM provides a full text index for those papers included in DiSC '03. The index is based on text extracted from the scanned paper images using optical character recognition (OCR) techniques. The accuracy of the text extraction process is limited in some cases by the quality of the original typescript; this can also affect the quality of text that can be selected using the Acrobat text selection tool.
You can utilize the full text index with Adobe Acrobat Reader 5 With Search, which can be found under the root directory. Once within Acrobat Reader, select edit/Search/Select Indexes... from the menu, then Add. Select the file index.pdx from the root directory of DiSC '03.
