VueScan is a powerful scanning program that works with most scanners to produce high-quality scans that have excellent color fidelity. It takes advantage of the advanced hardware capabilities of most scanners on the market today, and helps you do batch scanning while at the same time producing color-balanced and cropped images.

Version 7.6.64 is the last for OS 9. (11/2/03)

Please note that these scanners are unsupported for several reasons:
Parallel port scanners are unsupported because the commands they use are undocumented by the vendors, are extremely complex and are difficult to reverse engineer.
Most other unsupported scanners are parallel-port scanners internally, with an internal USB-parallel converter.
The Canon FS2720 is unsupported because it uses a complex USB-SCSI converter internally and requires complex firmware downloads.
The other Canon scanners aren't supported because Canon won't document the commands they use, and these commands are too complex to reverse-engineer.

Everytime when you buy scanner, you have boundle CD with app to use scanner, OCR app and (sometimes) app to create and print useable things.
If not, you can download driver +app from producer sites.
It's not "must to have" app.

I know this runs SOME USB scanners, but the overwhelming majority are SCSI/Parallel. My Canon N670U is supported well with all versions of 8.x.x on WinXP - but is definitely not supported by this version - this is not an issue, as original Canon drivers work fine (with TWAIN too).

If someone re-uploads this, please wrap it into .img.sit, using Disk Copy. Wink
