That sounds like they are just scanning them as images, you'd have to do the whole OCR process yourself?

Still not having to scan and proof an entire book yourself might make it worth the cost, especially for paperbacks. I HATE scanning and proofing.
If they did a good job, I'd be tempted. Yes I can scan them myself, but my time is worth more than $1 per 200 pages. The risk is that they do a crappy job, with missing or misaligned pages, and the original book is gone.
