Chapter 17. Hardware Options > Other Complementary Devices

Other Complementary Devices

There are many more items that you could add on to your Tablet PC, but I’ll cover the basic three here: scanning devices, photo-capturing devices, and printing devices. The Tablet PC is the perfect platform for storing digitized print, such as scanned documents, as well as digital photographs. Being able to print them for others who aren’t fortunate enough to have a Tablet PC will probably be required at some point.

Scanners

Windows XP has excellent tools for getting the most out of scanners and cameras. Office XP and 2003 also offer the Office Document Scanning utility, which helps you scan and even use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) on your documents and images. This utility lets you scan text into your Word documents directly, without retyping. It is quite accurate, but stray marks and strange fonts can yield text that requires editing.
