Re: Need help scanning books

Dear Socio Hack & List:


If you wish to scan many bound books, a flatbed Book Edge scanner will make the job easier and help you scan closer to the boo’s spine.


I believe ‘Book Edge Scanners last better than cheaper ones.


However, we all have a budget to live within, even our favorite Uncle, Sam.

There is no Kurzweil scanner.  Kurzweil sells OCR programs. 


As I said, if you don't care if the binding of books is bent, Epson scans well. 


I assume you are already using an OCR program.

Hello Gene,

Kurzweil seems a bit expensive for me. However, Epson Perfection series is in the right price range. Can it be reliably used for scanning books?

In addition, what other flatbed scanners specific for scanning books you were talking about? Can you provide some names?
