What Is a Scanner and its Uses?

A scanner is a device that scans any book, document, or file, one paper at a time, and makes a soft copy of the said document or file. Scanners are compatible with electronic devices like computers, phones, and laptops. They connect with them and produce a soft copy of the hard copy version of the material into the device. It is extremely popular and helpful in offices and schools where workers or students need to take bulk of material with them, without carrying a huge load. They can recognize and examine every type of material from thick to thin, and from sleek sheets to thick books. The material is placed on a tray made of glass (of some scanners), and a button is placed. The examining head senses the document, and the picture of it is caught inside the scanner. It then displays the soft version of this material on the connected device of your choosing 9usually laptops, phones, tablets, and computers). There are various kinds of scanners available, all having different functions-

They are made with picture processors of high-resolution determination that can convert negatives into beautiful enlarged photographs. The output picture quality of the scanner depends upon the resolution offered by the different kinds of scanners available in the market.

Sheet Feed scanner:

They work like a modern-day fax machine. The picture that is recorded into the scanner passes the source of light, and the head that checks the document converts it into a virtual file or electronic file/document.
