> <:#1728,9360>I have had the scanner since late last year. The most common use is
>  for preparing presentations. That is, being able to take a cartoon, drawing, di
> agram etc. and put it into a Powerpoint presentation. Also it is used, naturally
> , for scanning in pre-wordproc
> essing documents, so they can be altered, saved etc. It was originally mainly pu
> rchased as a result of the decision to put all policy & procedure manuals on com
> puter, and many of them contained things that originated from other sources - ha
> ndouts etc. they
> they wanted to format in a standardized way.

> <:#2304,9360>We use a Fujitsu scanner and M/Series Professional Software from Ca

>  One that caught my eye was the Epson 1000c ($800) There are models up from this

> the web has been utilized here is a training tool.  An html document that you ca

> ten notes, x-rays
> , photos of inhouse locations.  You could actually design a tour package for new
>  employees utilizing the scanner to upload photos of the different spots through
> out the hospital.  Just ideas.  Hope they are useful.
