The post “Proofreading” (below) provides a method to create a list of every word in a Microsoft Word document using TextSTAT that makes previously undetected typos and spelling errors more evident for correction. If you are using InDesign to create a book, the following steps will result in an MS Word document file needed for TextSTAT to work.
From the InDesign book palette, select “Export Book to PDF” using the same preset for creating your press-ready PDF.
Open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro and save it as an html file (File> Save As> More Options> HTML Web Page). Before saving, click the “Settings” button and uncheck "Include Images" and "Run OCR." Click “OK.” Saving the PDF as a Word file does not capture all of the text in the headers properly.
Save the html version of the PDF file where you can locate it. Open the html file in MS Word and save it as a .doc file. Now, follow the directions outlined in the “Proofreading” post.
