Hi Padma,

This is where a camera solution like the Hovercam is better than a flatbed
scanner, it can scan right into the spine of a book, because it loks down on
the book.

By the way, Kurzweil from 13 up supports the Hovercam as well.

All the best

Steve

\Hi!

Pardon my ignorance;  but can you please if docuscan can scan books?  I have
Kurtzweil software which is self-voicing.  I use it for scanning books.
However, I find it does not scan text near the spine of the book which is
very frustrating.

I use DocuScan+ with a Canoscan Lide 210 desktop scanner. I don't do a great
deal of scanning, but it's a good combination that does the job pretty well.

Couple of things. DocuScan+ is a self voicing application, which I
personally find a bit irritating. It automatically silences Jaws when it's
in focus though.

I also choose not to store sensitive documents using the DocuScan+ cloud
feature. It isn't clear what level of encryption Serotek uses for its cloud
storage (if any), so I store all sensitive documents on my local machine. 

It is remarkably easy to use though. The Canoscan just worked as soon as I
plugged it into my Windows 7 computer, and DocuScan+ is easy to install and
operate.

The DocuScan+ website is here:
