Scanning Documents Using the SmartVault Inbox and TWAIN-Compliant Scanners


Since most TWAIN compliant scanners are plug-and-play, generally, all you need to do is connect the scanner to your computer or network. Select the scanner from the drop-down list in the SmartVault Inbox, and then scan; No additional configuration is required.

For more information about connecting your scanner to your computer or network, see your scanner documentation.

If you want to create full-text searchable PDFs when scanning, ensure you enable Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capabilities for your TWAIN-compliant scanner. For more information, see Understanding and Creating Full-Text Searchable Documents.
