Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is an automatic document feeder (ADF)?
AAn automatic document feeder allows you to 'queue' up multiple documents to scan - the device will work though each document one after another, scanning it and moving to the next.
QWhat is duplex scanning?
ADuplex scanning allows the device to automatically scan both sides of a document at once, meaning you don't have to separately scan the other side of the page.
QWhat are the pros/cons between an ADF, flatbed and handheld scanners?
AADF scanners allow for quickly scanning large amounts of material, and are usually the cheaper option. Flatbed scanners are slower, but tend to have a higher resolution, and are better for photos and graphics. Lastly handheld scanners are less powerful than their brothers, but are far less bulky, so can be used on the go.
