I am not getting better results in "Scan to Word", "Scan to Excel" or "Scan to PowerPoint" even though I changed the [Image quality] to "Excellent".


The answer is same as the answer of the question Why does it fail to OCR some of the documents when I use "Scan to Word", "Scan to Excel" or "Scan to PowerPoint"? Also, the layouts and texts are sometimes displayed incorrectly. What type of documents can it convert without any problems? .

Since "Excellent" scans at a higher resolution, the image is more likely to include dust and other variations that may lead to a lower OCR.

We recommend the setting below:
Set [Image quality] to "Better" or "Best" (Color) in the [Scanning] tab and set the compression rate to "1" in the [Compression] tab.


Target ScanSnap:
SV600 / iX500 / iX100 / S1100i / S1100 / S1300i / S1300 / S1500 / S1500M / S510 / S500
