Summary
  • 32 scanners ranging up to $10,000 in price are evaluated. Graphics scanners copy images electronically and convert them into bit-mapped form for editing with a paint program. Optical character reader (OCR) scanners scan text as if it were line art and convert it into a format such as ASCII or DCA for word processing. Facsimile transmission (fax) scanning digitizes images to send and receive data. The cutting edge of technology is an OCR's ability to read typeset text. Surveyed are: scanner history; the scanning mechanism; image processing; the halftoning process; storage needs; and future developments. The needs of computer-aided design, desktop publishing, archival image storage, and forms processing are discussed. The Dest PC Scan Plus is the best general-purpose scanner. The Kurzweil Discover 7320 offers the best OCR capabilities for typeset text. The Microtek MSF-300C is the best graphics scanner. The Epson Image Scanner Option Kit is the best of four less-than-ideal printhead scanning attachments reviewed.
