Need a new scanner.
I need to get a new scanner. The problem is that the technology has changed over 20 years. Can a blind person do a simple scan, without sighted assistance, on these new types of scanners?
The old scanning process was simple. My old HP scanner is a flat bed.
Just lift the lid, place the letter size page face down and close the lid. Then I could use the HP software to start the scan.
The HP scanner also had physical buttons for e-mail, PDF and even copy to the default printer.
My online browsing of scanners makes me wonder if I will have a problem. The Brother ATS-1000w has dimensions less than a letter size paper.
11 inches wide, 4 inches deep & 3 inches high.
It also has a 20 sheet feeder. It also has a touch screen display.
I assume that there is no flat bed. Maybe a slot. Maybe an attachment to hold the document or photo which means the foot print is larger than listed.
I already have a Brother Laser printer. The Brother Creative Center is very accessible with JAWS.
Online shopping is limited in the information presented. I would appreciate any comments on possible problems that I might encounter after getting the scanner home and set up.
