I have gotten *much* better accuracy than you suggest. A dozen years
ago, the early versions of OmniPage were seeing about 2 or 3 errors
per page of xerographically reproduced printed pages, and TypeReader
was even better.

I would expect both to be substantially better today, but certainly
better than "one error every twenty words" for clean originals.
