original

scanner works very much like a

photocopier, but a scanner digitizes the

information into a computer, not onto the

other piece of paper

In a process called imaging, a scanner

converts a drawing, a picture, on any

document into computer recognizable form

26

Scanners take an electronic picture of the printed

page, break each image into thousands of light

and dark dots that can be stored in the computer

Then software in the computer tells it how to

interpret the dot patterns

27

Scanners consist of two components

First a data capturing subsystem light-up the document

so the image can be recorded

Then an image-processing subsystem uses

sophisticated software to convert the optical images

into digital form and store the date in a file

Scanners come in both handheld and desktop

models
