First make sure that you scanner’s TWAIN driver (found on the included CD or manufacturer website) is installed and that the scanner shows up in the ‘Scanners and Cameras’ section of the ‘Control Panel’.
On the Batch tab of Job Options change the Input Files From setting from Folder to Scanner. With this option set, the scanner automatically starts when you click the Run Job button to process a new batch.
From the Scan menu you have the option to select your scanner, set compression settings, display or hide the scanner’s TWAIN settings interface or have SimpleIndex prompt the user when the feeder is empty.
The Scan to Input Folder command in the Scan menu lets you separate the scanning from processing. Use this to scan a sample image to draw OCR zones. Images are scanned to numbered TIFF images in the designated Input Folder.
