What optical scanners have been successfully used with Linux?
What drivers are available for them? What does one have to know about
a given optical scanner in order to write a driver for it under
Is there any good free software for character recognition for use
with optical scanners?
I've posted to this newsgroup since I am interested in doing this with
linux. But I would also be interested in knowing of a newsgroup on which one
can post general questions about scanners.
