How to scan using the book scanner

  • Connect your USB drive and place your original document on the machine with the text side uppermost.
  • Press the green bar to scan automatically in "Basic Mode".
  • You can switch to "Expert Mode" using the touch-screen. This mode enables you to scan multiple pages to a single file. "Expert Mode" also lets you choose between the file formats .tif, .jpg or .pdf and allows you to select further options such as brightness or colour scans.

You will find detailed instructions at each book scanner.
