moderated Re: Scanning with Open book versus JAWS

Glenn / Lenny

When I was working my supervisor always laughed at me because I preferred to
use my flat bed scanner and did not feel the need for the agency to buy me a
pearl scanner.
I think a flat bed scanner will always give a better picture than a camera
of any type.
Although the flat bed scanner is still a camera.
That has always puzzled me, if flat bed scanners get better cameras inside
as time goes on, or if they basically keep the same technology.

Honestly, my opinion is that scanning material with a flatbed scanner is
always going to be a bit easier than using a phone unless you have a
stand that can position your phone in a stationary location. Even then
starting a scanner from a PC keyboard and using that keyboard to quickly
save a document or copy and paste that scanned text into another
document is, at least for me, a much faster and more efficient
experience. There may be others who feel differently about this and I'd
be interested in hearing their perspective.

While we're on this topic, how does things like OpenBook compare to
scanning apps for the phone, or things like envision AI?
