Dear Mary,
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,
diagram etc. and put it into a Powerpoint presentation. Also it is used,
naturally, for scanning in pre-wordprocessing documents, so they can be
altered, saved etc. It was originally mainly purchased as a result of the
decision to put all policy & procedure manuals on computer, and many of them
contained things that originated from other sources - handouts etc. they
they wanted to format in a standardized way.
I hope this is useful.
