Scanner For OCRing Books?

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by George Styles, May 11, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    Im looking for a flatbed scanner specifically for scanning in and OCRing
    books. I already have OCR software.

    What I am after is the cheepest scanner that can scan a A4 page (ie, 2
    facing pages in a book) in 5 seconds or less. I only need black and white. I
    would guess I would need 200-300dpi for OCR'ing.

    I want to spend under UK£80

    Does anyone have any reccomendations for such a scanner?

    ideally it would be USB2 bus powered so I wouldnt need another wall wart.

    thanks

    George
