This Question is a 2 parter...
What scanner would you reccomend that can scan a doc every 5 secs?
Is there an OCR activeX or is there software that will automatically save the doc to a file?

hp makes scanners with ADF's (Automatic Document Feeders). The cycle time is more than 5 seconds, but not by a huge amount.

Are you trying to get editable text? This will take significantly longer than 5 seconds per page. The scanning process is quick, the OCR process takes a while.

I've successfully used the "SCANCOPY" program to automatically scan a stack of docs and save them as Adobe .PDF format. This is simple and easy to set up. We then have an operator tag each page with a note listing the client and reference number. A piece of VB then concatenates all related documents into one large file and extracts the notes into an Access .MDB file. This allows rapid search and retrevial of documents by the LAN users. We can get a list of canidate documents from the database in just a couple of seconds (out of thousands of documents on file). Retrieval time from document selection to the document being pulled up in Adobe Reader (including jumping to the correct page within the document) is typically under five seconds.
