What are the limitations and best practices

  • Please always use the black mat supplied with the device.
  • The best OCR results are obtained from a matte document; a shiny surface may produce results of lower quality.
  • The best results are obtained in standard work environment lighting conditions; too much brightness can affect the quality of the result (direct sunlight, for example, does not suit the scanner).
  • The available book export formats are as follows: PDF image, indexed PDF image & text, JPEG, and ePub. Audio formats (MP3 and WAV) are available as an option with Readiris Corporate.
  • This scanner is not optimised for photo scanning.
  • A “passport holder” (available as an option for ease of use and optimised results) helps with passport scanning.
  • IRISPowerscan™ (optional) must be installed if you wish to extract meta data from official documents (passports, ID cards, health cards, etc.).
