Hello Tim

First get the mobipocket creator (it’s free) from the mobipocket website: http://www.mobipocket.com/en/Downloa...ilsCreator.asp

Now the building of a mobipocket (the kindle reads this format) eBook:

1 - save your ocr result in formatted text (*.txt), not rtf . Its’ better to always begin with an unformatted text than it’s to “unformat” a ocr result;

2 - open the text in word, format it at will. Use styles, at least “normal” for the text and “heading 1” (2, 3 etc… if you have multilevel headings) for your chapters… this will guarantee that when building the eBook in mobipocket creator, it generates automatically the table of contents;

3 - save the result as one html file - you can import other formats but my experience html gives the least problems;

4 - open that file in mobipocket creator and fill in the metadata, put in a cover image and guarantee that it will build a table of contents from the “headings” of the html file file you have created - in the table of contents option of the program choose “create” and put “h1” (without the “s) if you have one level of headers (heading1), “h2” if you have a second level of headers too (heading2), etc;

5 - do not forget to save your work so you can come back if needed;

6 - when everything is completed choose “build”, it will generate your eBook with an extension of *.prc;

7 - load the file in your kindle and enjoy.

Note: if you have doubts, juts navigate the website from where you downloaded the mobipocket program for tips on how to procede.
