You should have an application named ControlCenter4.

The first you open it, set it to Advanced.

In that application, you have firstly, after the combobox with the model name, a group of buttons:

Digitalization, PCCopy and Photo.

Those buttons will define what you see in the app when you keep tabbing...

Assuming you press Digitalization button, you will have options for Images, OCR (never worked here...), E-mail and File.

To create a file on your PC, press Enter on File.

If you press Enter again, the scan starts with default settings, and your PDF document will be placed on the following folder, opened automatically:

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

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?
