As mentioned before, it is no real problem once you have a little technique
(especially, you have to move the scanner quickly -- but not too fast). And
the font size has to be at least 22.

All different font sizes are the same height! i.e., they are longer with the
larger sizes but they all are the same height. Can you make them taller?
Actually, the height you have is probably okay. I'm just wondering though.
Maybe you could give some examples with various heights (shorter as well as
taller).

Out of curiosity, can you give some text examples (say, Code B characters ..
maybe try some Code A too).
