Selecting the Scanning Interface

By default, ABBYY FineReader uses its own scanning dialog box to adjust scanning options. If, for some reason, the ABBYY FineReader scanning dialog box is incompatible with your scanner model, the scanner's dialog box is used.

1. ABBYY FineReader scanning dialog box

In this case, the ABBYY FineReader interface is used to set up scanning mode. The following settings are available:

2. TWAIN or WIA interface provided by the scanner

In this case, scanning options are selected from the scanner driver's dialog box. Consult the technical documentation provided with the scanner for more information about the dialog box and its components.

Important! Consult the scanner manual for proper setup. Make sure to install the software supplied with the scanner.

The ABBYY FineReader scanning interface is used by default.

To change the scanning interface:

  1. Open the Options dialog box from the Scan/Open tab (Tools>Options…).
  2. Set the toggle switch in the Scanner group to either: Use ABBYY FineReader interface or Use native interface.
