    How can we access the ocr text that is "behind the scenes" of the digital objects ?

      I am transcribing documents in the State Dept Numerical Files 1906-1910 which are in the catalog as digitized microfilm images. I did an advanced search ("buffalo new york")  (RG59) and filter 'archival desc with digital objects.'  This result list includes "Numerical File: 3747-3764", NAID: 19510440 Box 9, M862 Roll 347. Then I click on the link and it brings the first image of the 839 images. How can I find the image(s) that corresponds with my search term (buffalo new york) ? I guess there is some ocr function operating in the background. Can I see the ocr generated text ?
