Many thanks for the explanation. The technique has not worked for me but I
used to think it is a posibility.
I now know better.

I will be very surprised if this works. The reason that Infty Reader
requires higher resolution than other OCR is that it cannot depend on
things like characters all being on one line. In math, characters can
be distributed over a wide area. There are also quite subtle
characteristics that distinguish, for example, a lower case alpha from a
lower case a or italic a. And there are a number of big characters that
might look like a collection of alphabetic characters. Recognition
accuracy degrades rapidly when parts of characters begin to touch when
they are, in principle, separated by white space. So artificially
increasing resolution will probably not correct those "touches".
