The only matters of interest here are probably speed, price and its size
for intended task.  Nearly all OCR takes place whether Openbook or
Kurzweil or whatever at about 300 or perhaps 400 DPI and perhaps in
colour to push the boat out a little further, way below the maximum
optical resolution of any scanner currently available let alone software
assisted interpolative resolution.

The Canon machines on the whole have not been known for their speed on
OCR applications.  We recommend the Epson scanners for speed and general
compatability with Kurzweil 1000 and I know FS have a similarly good
report about the Epson scanners for Openbook as well.
