NAPS2 is a good, basic software application for scanning PDFs on Windows. But you might be looking to do more than NAPS2 is able to do. You might also want to use a scanner that isn’t supported by NAPS2, because it doesn’t have a native Windows driver available for it.
VueScan works differently than NAPS2. VueScan uses built-in drivers that we reverse engineered ourselves. We also use WIA drivers as a backup in case we haven’t created a driver for that scanner model yet. This is the biggest advantage of VueScan over NAPS2. Many customers have switched to VueScan from NAPS2 when Windows updates their operating system and they discover that there is no longer a driver provided by either their scanner manufacturer or Windows themselves.
