I've owned three all-in-one units with screens, and the screen hasn't effected scanning functionality on any of them. Right now I do most of my scanning with a giant Epson workforce all-in-one that has a 11x17 scanner. It works fine with Jaws, as long as you choose the right scanner for the ocr, there are choices that won't work at all.

Try to find a dedicated, stand alone scanner, which is likely to be more accessible and easier to use than an all-in-one unit, which may have an LCD screen with inaccessible menuoptions. I would recommend Epson Perfection scanners. My Epson Perfection 4490 has been performing like a work horse with Open Book and JAWS convenient OCR for ten years.

some limited OCR scanning. The Jaws tech support would not recommend
a scanner. The only thing they said is that it had to be TWAIN
I have started researching scanners and would like the list's
opinions. Especially from those using the Jaws OCR feature. Right
now I just want to OCR my mail. Eventually, I plan to purchase
OpenBook. In the mean time, I can't decide if I should go with one of
the lower end Brother's mobile scanners or if I should purchase a
multi function printer/scanner/fax models.
Looking on Amazon, there a a lot of scanners to choose from. I'd like
to keep the cost under $250 unless this isn't reasonable.
All opinions are welcome.
