Re: Openbook 9 and a Epson Scanner

Hi Chris,
 
What I want to try is using the scanner with Windows Fax & Scan to see if the scanner acts the same way.  I've never run into a situation where the scanner won't stop scanning until you force it to stop.

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

Hi again Mike. Have you tried the scanner with another OCR source, such as jaws OCR, to see if the scanner is faulty?

You need to have the drivers installed for the scanner before you will get it to work along with the Epson scanner program

Hi Chris,

 

This particular model doesn't have a camera lock, and yes that's the first thing I thought of but, it's the same model as mine so I know for sure it doesn't have a lock.

Hi Mike. Just a thought, but does the scanner have a lock, many do, and has your friend checked to make sure it’s not on?

Hi All,

 

A friend is running Windows 7 Home 32 bit, Jaws 13, Openbook 9 and an Epson Perfection V39 flatbed scanner.  When he gives the command to scan a document the scanner starts, but it won't stop and keeps making a ding sound every few seconds while scanning!  You have to press the spacebar to interrupt / stop the scan or it'll never stop.  Also, it never acquires any text for Openbook to read.  I don't have much experience with diagnosing scanners especially through a tandem session, so I don't have a clue as to why this behavior is happening.  If anyone knows why this is happening, would you please enlighten me?  All help will be greatly appreciated and graciously accepted.  Thank y'all very much.


Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.
