http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello Does anyone use a pen scanner like C-Pen or Irispen with Ubuntu? Because I think I'll buy one of these two, but there's ofc no official linux version out. I've read somewhere that there are two different pen-types, one sends the image to the computer and then it sends text through a special OCR program. I think this type won't work in Linux, but the other type could be working probably: it converts the image immediately to text and sends the whole text to the computer. So, does anyone know which type will work, or does anyone use already such a pen scanner with Ubuntu? thanks, phoeni (Hardware)
