Apple keeps changing their Mac OS and Acer/BenQ will not update the driver for my scanner. VueScan keeps my Canon scanner operating with each new Mac OS version that comes around. Boo for Canon - Kudos for VueScan!

This application always works. Plenty of features for any scanner out there. Can't find software and drivers for your scanner/OS version? No problem because VueScan will do the trick.

VueScan provides the simplest way to make your scanner work, none of the problems of Windows drivers "not found". That also means that old hardware gets a new lease of life, ecologically friendly at its best!

— Emily Moore in Houston, Texas, USA

My scanner, though perfectly good mechanically, had been orphaned heading into Windows 7. VueScan brought it back into use, and the new version for Windows 10 carried that on. The application is excellent.
