Scanners

Scanners have become an important part of the modern office. Not only can they be used to scan photographs into digital images for use in desktop publishing applications, but they can also be used to digitize images of paper documents for storing them electronically. In addition, optical character recognition software can examine a scanned image of text and convert that text into digital text for editing and use in a word processor or desktop publishing application. Some office machines combine the features of a scanner, printer, and copier into one unit. Figure 20-8 shows a combination scanner, printer, and copier.
