Do you need to transform the text of a book into a digital version for some reason? If so, you may be wondering what the fastest way is to scan a book.
There are really two answers we could give here.
The first would be to use a scanner. Obviously, not every option is going to be the fastest way to scan a book. Your budget will come into play a lot here, too.
However, we would recommend going with a flatbed scanner and then simply purchasing the best model you can find within your price range.
Due to their shape, these scanners are extremely easy to use. You’ll also have no problem scanning one page after another.
You only have to open the book 90 degrees to scan every page, too, which is great if you’re worried about damaging a delicate book.
While it may take you a minute to successfully scan a page during your first try, over time, your proficiency will improve and, with it, your ability to scan quickly.
Now, the other option that could be the fastest way to scan a book is to just hire a service to handle this process for you.
Is it actually faster than using a scanner? Well, it depends on how you look at it.
The really good services will pick up your book, do the scanning and then return both. This leaves you open to do whatever you want with your day.
Though it’s not necessarily “faster” it’s definitely more convenient. This becomes increasingly the case the more pages you have. For something like a textbook, it could take your hours to scan everything. Most people would rather just hire someone else to do it.
Unless you regularly need a scanner for other things, it’s probably just best to save your money and hire someone to take care of scanning for you.
