Scan Document (as Text)
For scanning text documents you should use one of the two B/W scanners. If scan is a single text page, place the item to be scanned face down as straight as possible against the upper-right corner. If scanning multiple pages, you may want to place pages in the feeder tray (located on the top of the scanner cover). You must remove all staples and paper clips and make sure pages aren’t bent or wrinkled. Place pages face down in tray.
For scanning photographs or graphics you should use one of the five color scanners. If you are scanning black and white images you can use the B/W scanners too.
