Re: Scanners.

Daniel McBride


Space for a flatbed scanner is always a consideration. I do not share
Marshall's problem because I have a very nice computer desk with a cabinet
in the lower right area of the desk that nicely accommodates my
printer/scanner and sits on a sliding pad. When I need to print, copy or
scan, I simply open the cabinet door, slide the printer out and perform the
necessary task. When completed, it easily slides back into the cabinet.

I am not 100% sure about scanning photographs, but my sighted wife believes
the HP 3820 does scan photos.

Now, there is a point worth consideration. Will this scanner scan pictures
into the computer?

I am making a scanner file and compiling all of these greatly appreciated
responses to my question.

Hi Carolyn,
I purchased an all-in-one printer last year and found out a couple of
things. The first is that in order to place a document on the scanner
bed;I had to put the scanner directly in front of me on my desk. This
took up a lot of useful space. I also found that placing a document on
the scanner while sitting down required stretching uncomfortably.
Also, if you don't do a lot of printing and don't need color printing.
I'd get a laser printer. While the cartridge is more expensive than one
for an inkjet printer, it lasts longer

So, I'm wondering, as a totally blind user of JAWS, is there a special
scanner I have to get for it to be accessible? Are some scanners out
there more accessible than others?

What is Open Book? I have heard of it. Would I be limited to getting that
or something like that?
