I have this scanner but have found the included software is not all that
accessible for screen reader users, mainly due to its very graphical
controls that don't give the screen reader anything to latch on to.  What I
did was just install the latest driver from the PlusTek website, and then
use Abbyy FineReader to create and manage my PDF documents.
Hope this helps. 
Have a pleasant day,
Kind Regards and Best Wishes,

Subject: [access-uk] Optic Book 3600
I am using the Optic Book Scanner.  Prior to this I had an HP ScanJet.  What
is puzzling me is that the old HP ScanJet which was purchased about 9 years
ago!!!  had an option to save a file to Adobie Acrobat.  The Optic Book does
not appear to have this facility, or does it?
