Is there anything that I should be aware of when using [Correct skewed character strings automatically] functions?


ScanSnap uses lines of text (character strings) contained in the image to correct any image that has been skewed up to a range of plus or minus 5 degrees. The fact that adjustments are based upon lines of text appearing in the image means that the skews in following types of documents may not be properly corrected.

  • Documents in which spaces between characters/lines are very narrow, or characters are overlapping
  • Documents with many outlined or decorated characters
  • Documents containing many pictures/diagrams and very little text
  • Documents with patterns in the background
  • Documents in which not all text faces the same direction (e.g. drawings)
  • Documents containing long diagonal lines
  • Documents containing handwritten text

Remove the check from [Deskew by text on document] box when scanning the above documents.

[Note]
If you scan the document by using ScanSnap Carrier Sheet, this setting will be disabled.
