A scanner is a good tool for both work and home use. The most common uses for scanners are to scan photos, books and documents. With features like optical character recognition (OCR), you can turn scanned documents into editable files and save everything digitally. There are different types of scanners but the most common is probably the flatbed scanner. There you simply place what you want to scan on a glass disc and then close the lid and press a button. If you often scan several pages, it is good if the scanner also has a sheet feeder. You simply connect your scanner to the computer with the supplied USB cable and in most cases your computer will find the drivers itself. But for more advanced features, install the manufacturer's scanner software. At Allectra, you will find scanners from well-known manufacturers such as Canon, Fujitsu, Kodak, Brother, Epson and more, and they are available in several different price ranges.
