DON'T BE OVERWHELMED.  YOU CAN LEARN THE COMPUTER!

We will help you get started on your computer.  We will help you understand the very basics so that you will feel comfortable using the computer, rather than intimidated by it.  Computer, monitor, speakers, printer, CD player, scanner, hard drive -- what are these, and how do they work?  We will show you.  We offer on-site training in your home or place of business (in the greater Glendale, CA area), using your own computer.  Whether you want to use email, surf the web, or do any number of tasks on the computer, we can get you started.  Once you have learned the basics, you are ready for the next step:  learning how to work in various types of programs. 

Follow-up tech support is available.  Sometimes a simple phone call can save hours of frustration.

GETTING HELP WITH VARIOUS COMPUTER PROGRAMS

Many businesses and individuals would like to do a certain amount of desktop publishing themselves, saving only the more advanced work for a computer consultant such as OM Publishing. As much as we would like to do the whole job for you, we are also interested in helping you learn how to do some of the work for yourself. We will train you or your staff not only in how to use the programs listed below, but we will also help you apply your training to the work you need to do.

WE KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE FRUSTRATED, NOT KNOWING HOW TO DO A NEEDED TASK ON THE COMPUTER. WE WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE DOING. WE WILL ALSO HELP YOU LEARN WHERE TO GO FOR HELP.

Follow-up tech support is available to all who receive training. (See below).

We not only train you in a given program, we can train you how to work back and forth seamlessly in several programs, to get the most out of your computer.

TECHNICAL SUPPORT AVAILABLE

Sometimes small problems create major headaches when it comes to computers.  How often have you wanted to accomplish a certain effect, such as placing a frame around a heading, and you just can't figure out how to do it.  In fact, you do not even know what the function is called, so you cannot look it up in Help.  Not knowing how to do a certain function is very frustrating.  A simple phone call may give you in minutes the answer you've been searching days for.  And you do not have to pay a minimum $60 or $90 per call to get your answers.

SCANNING SERVICES

We can scan both TEXT and IMAGES in black-and-white or full color, at a resolution suitable to you.

TEXT

The advantage of scanning text is that you can take a hardcopy document and place it into your computer so that you can work on it in a word- processing program.

No text scanning software can offer 100% accuracy. Therefore, even if there is 99% accuracy, this means that out of every 100 words, there is likely to be at least 1 error. If there are about 300 words on an average page, that means 3 errors per page. Also, text scanning software does not always maintain the original formatting and layout.

Therefore, in addition to the the plain scanning of text so that it can be worked with in a computer, we offer the service of cleaning up the scanned text so that it is all one font, all spelled correctly, and formatted like the original hardcopy.
