Looking for a basic (stand-alone) office scanner which requires no computer input
Posted on 2014-01-06
I'm looking for a simple no bells-and-whistles office scanner which can be operated without any input from my desktop and if it's possible, nothing even showing up on my screen.
I occasionally ask an office assistant to scan a stack of several documents. With my previous scanner, the assistant could begin each scan without input from my desktop computer (by pressing a button on the scanner itself) but each time the scanning of a document was completed, a small but annoying window would pop-up on my screen. I was then required to click two or three different buttons before the next scan was allowed.
What I want is to be able to hand off the documents needing to be scanned and then continue working on my desktop without interruptions while the scanning is being done. I do want the scan files to end up in a folder on my hard drive but I'd like them to simply go there automatically without requiring input from me. That way I can access them when I want which is usually later when all the scanning is done.
Does anyone know of a scanner (brand & model) which fits that description?
