Given how much I like to take fragments of text and use them as the basis of notes and then put them into things I write, I have been eying these scanner pens for awhile wondering if they would make life easier for me.
I initially saw them in an airline Skymall cataloge. That stuff always seems cheesey and yet is utterly compelling eye candy when I travel.
here is one review.
No one loves these devices. And since the flatness of the documents seems critical for OCR, I wonder if any version is worthwhile for me now. The Planon DCR scans a whole page and seems a superior design than the highlighter types. Maybe a flatbed scanner would be better. I could just scan pages I need. Does scanner software easily convert to text (as opposed to images)?
