NOVICE REQUESTS SCANNING ADVICE

My sister and myself aim to share a project in which we will separately scan in thousands of A4 pages of hand-written notes. One aim will be to save the data on hard-drive and CD and exchange the CD?s between ourselves. We are both on Win XP and both novices.

We are confused by the different number of programs available for scanning.

My sister uses ScanSoft PaperPort Deluxe 9.0 but has found it non-user-friendly and has needed three stages (with each individual scan) to change the language into JPEG. Is it possible to do this more easily?

I haven?t yet lifted the lid of my new Canon Scanner ? nor of any scanner - but know that it uses a Scan Soft ? Omni Page system.

We understand that we need to use compatible systems with a ?language? commonly recognized by most PC's.

Preliminary advice will be appreciated. Many Thanks.
