Hi, Monica. I use a scanner that costs less than $100 and has been a work horse for me. It's a CanoScan LiDe. The model I have isn't being made now, but a close friend has the current model and is having the same results. It's quiet, lightweight, connects with USB, and works great with Kurzweil. I've had mine for almost 5 years now and am still going strong with it. As for the all-in-one scanners, I have tried an HP and a Lexmark with very poor OCR results. They do scan, but readability is awful! They are also slower than molasses in January. Our Epson multifunction scanner does work with Kurzweil, but it is very slow, doing a page every 2 minutes. Not so hot for scanning books. I hope this helps you a bit.

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.
