What is the best scanner software to scan a document?

Almost all scanner software can scan a PDF document, but VueScan is the best because of the diverse amount of scanners it works with. You can use it on a 20 year old flatbed to the newest fast sheet feeder scanner.

Why doesn’t my PDF scanner work?

There are many reasons that your scanner software might not be working, but the most likely is because there is no scanner driver available for it on the operating system you’re using.

Our software, VueScan, solves this problem by independently reverse engineering the scanner drivers and creating a new version of them so that you can keep using the scanner you already have.
