If you yearn for a paperless office and digital files instead of paper clutter and bulging filing cabinets, then you can use a document scanner to turn paper documents into PDF files that have searchable text. Modern document scanners can digitize large volumes of documents consisting mainly of text, you simply load the paper documents to be scanned into an automatic feeder and the pages come out in a horizontal tray which is usually in the front once scanned. Most modern scanners also have software that can perform optical character recognition), so within a few minutes paper documents can be turned into searchable PDF files so you can eliminate all your personal and business documents and free up lots of office and desk space. In addition, many of the latest scanners are compact enough to travel with, are battery powered and can transfer files wirelessly using RF 2.4Ghz technology or Bluetooth.
