The Bellevue University Library recently purchased new scanning stations. These Simple Scan Stations are user friendly with handy touch-screen options that guide you through scanning your documents, books, or photographs. The Simple Scan Stations also have great accessibility features such as a magnifier and high contrast settings.
Before you scan your item, you can choose the output format. The scanner can convert documents into PDF, JPEG, Word, TIFF, PNG, HTML, MP3, and translated file formats. There are many versatile ways you can receive your files once they have been scanned, for instance, users can choose to scan to USB, email, smart phone, One-Drive, Google-Drive, or Dropbox.
The Simple Scan Stations have translation and audio features that make them an even greater addition to the library. They can translate text from documents to and from 64 different languages. They can also create audio files from text documents in 34 languages. Languages include English, Arabic, Greek, Vietnamese, Hebrew, and both simplified and traditional Chinese, just to name a few.
