Hi, Barbara. Yes, it works very well with Kurzweil. Shane At 07:24 PM 8/11/2007, you wrote:
Is it Kurzweil compatible? Shane Christenson <drummershane@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote: hi, Barbara. I just recently bought a Plustek opticbook 3600. It is a book-edge scanner, which means it will let the part of the book that's not being scanned, hang from the edge of the unit, allowing for scanning of print that is typically very close to the insides of pages in some books. While it isn't great for scanning photos, it is very highly rated for its ability to scan books. The reviews on amazon.com will even say so. You'll see mixed reviews, but the bad ones usually come from those trying to scan photos, or from those who for some reason didn't install the software properly. Those who are looking to just scan books, and do it in a relatively timely fashion, rave about it. I installed it on my machine at work, and the problem I had was that it was conflicting with our networked scanner/printer/fax/copier machine. I disabled it on my machine, and now the scanner works beautifully. It's a bit more expensive then one of the flatbeds like a cannon or one of the epsons, (about 250 dollars including shipping) as opposed to an 80-dollar cannon, Which in their own rights are great. I own one of the cannons, and while it produces great scans, it's not the easiest thing in the world for scanning books, although it's doable. If you're just looking to scan books with mostly straight text, the plustek opticbook is worth every penny. Some other people on this list also have the opticbook 3600, and I believe will also swear by it. if you decide to get one of these, nay of us who have it all ready, will be able to help you get it set up, should you have any questions. I hope this helps. Shane At 11:45 PM 8/10/2007, you wrote: >I just bought a V 100 Epson scanner from Best Buy. Is there a better >scanner that I can get?
