This puppy gently turns each page so guillotining a book to run it through a sheet feeder isn’t necessary to scan the 2,500 to 3,500 pages an hour it promises. This is obviously intended for the large scanning projects being undertaken by several tech-related organizations and library groups. A more significant question though is how all of this scanned material, most of it from libraries paid for by taxpayers like myself, can be made available to the blind and those with disabilities. While about 1,800 volunteer submitted books were added to Bookshare last year, this machine can scan almost as much in a week running 23 hours a day with an average productivity of 3,000 pages an hour with 350 page books. I hope that Bookshare or a similar resource can tap into this output someday.
