What is a Scanner?
A scanner is a device that takes a printed object
and converts it into a digital file that a computer
can use. A simpler analogy might be to think of
the scanner as a series of eyes that read a document
and translate it into something that the computer
can work with. The type of document, the speed of
scanning, and the over all quality of the scan vary
greatly by the type of scanner you choose.
