Re: Accessible scanner drivers

Richard Kuzma
 

Good morning,
My borther printer is a standalone laser printer.
I use a canon flatbed scanner to scan in my documents.
I use either adobe acrobat or kerzweil 1000.
There is an inexpensive program called text cloner that runs about $139 and it is excellent.
I have two blind friends thatuse it and it is completely accessible.
Let me know if I can be of any more help
Rich

Rich,

Since you have a Brother printer...How do I find out how to scan a piece of paper into my computer document file? I looked on the net but couldn't find even a manual for directions. Can you help? I have eyes at my house, if that helps. Thanks for any information. Marilyn

Depends on what software you are going to use with it.
If you are using open book and/or kerzweil os something like that all you should need is twain support and that will be transparent to the software.
I havea a standalone black and white brother inexpensive laser printer that I just love and a separate cannon scanner that is working like a champ.
Hope this helps
Rich

Hello all,
I am looking to buy a new scanner as my old one just died. However I've heard that scanner drivers from many manufacturers tend to be not very accessible. Can anyone recommend me which scanner (or scanner+printer) comes with accessible driver/accompanying software?
Thanks!
Tony
