Steve:
I find this odd as it refers to one in the manual I believe.

Hi David,

There is no ADF for it as far as I am aware.

All the best

Steve

Have you had any joy finding an ADF for it?

I haven't.

Hi Darren,

 

Yes, the OpticBook is excellent, and I use it every day, and it sounds like
it is in your budget range.  But if you go a bit higher, the 4600, so I am
told, is even better.  It scans a page in three seconds, which is pretty
unbelievable.  Again, I don't have one, and they are more expensive, but it
is the only other book edge scanner I know, other than the 3600, which is
darned good in itself. 

 

All the best

 

Steve

Hi All

 

I'm thinking of buying a flat bed scanner and want one that will obviously
perform OCR, but not be too expensive.

 

I remember the opticbook 3600 being mentioned quite a few times on here and
our very own Mr Nut saying how good it performs. 

 

Obviously an edge scanner would be the best option, but I don't think there
are any in my price range which is currently a few hundred pounds.

 

After reading the reviews for the opticbook it sounds like it performs
reasonably well and can apparently cope with shadowing that occurs near the
spine. So it sounds like it will suffice for scanning in text books.

 

If there is anyone on the list who owns an opticbook then your comments
would be most welcome, as at the moment it sounds like a good investment.
However if you know of an alternative that performs as well or better then I
would love to hear about it.

 

Cheers
Darren.
