My scanner is from Epson. You can find them at Epson.com. It is a TWAIN
scanner, but I use it with the Epson software that is shipped with the
scanner because it is the best so far at interfacing with the scanner which
is quite understandable. The program is extremely accessible with JAWS; I
have not tried it with any other screen reader. I have the GT 15000 model,
for which I also purchased the automatic document feeder accessory. The
entire order cost me around $2.7 thousand, so it is expensive, but a very
excellent scan quality indeed.

  Unfortunately Twain is not all twain.  It all depends on how its
implemented.  Plus the quality of the scanner is not always perfect.
Believe me, even standards can be poorly done.

  Don't see why you can't use one of the multifunctions.  TWAIN is TWAIN.
But then, I don't use anything but retail products
    for scanning. So nless there's some technical reason you shouldn't use a
all in one unit from walmart, I'd say go for it anyway.

    Hello to all.  I had spoken to Kurzweil yesterday and they had said that
the All In One scanners do not work well with there software.  So, based on
this answer, what scanners are you all currently using or would recommend
for me to buy.  I'm getting a compter with windows XP.  I'd appreciate any
suggestions you may have.  Thanks again in advance for your help.
