Equipped with printing, scanning, and copying capabilities, the manufacturers of the Brother DCP-4020C USB Scanner also included their proprietary Photo Capture technology into this hardware component. The device driver implements the integral scanning functionality comparable to those of standalone scanners. The device driver makes it possible for the computer user to scan to image, directly email scanned files, or generate an editable text file. This feature provided by the Brother DCP-4020C USB Scanner and its corresponding device driver requires the presence of an Optical Character Recognition software application. These types of programs allows scanned image files to be converted into those which can be readily edited by word processing software applications. The device driver makes use of an industry standard to implement character recognition functionalities. The scanning functionality of this hardware component remains compliant with the TWAIN specifications for imaging devices.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
When properly configured with the correct device driver the Brother DCP-4020C USB Scanner allows for a seamless flow of data across the Universal Serial Bus interface port of the host computer system. Much like in the execution of printing operations the scanning process creates a two-way data highway via the data cable to receive instructions from the host machine as well as to send alerts and notifications. In this context the device driver normally checks on the status of the supported hardware component before sending a scanning job request. If the supported hardware component is not in ready status the device driver informs the computer user to make sure that the Brother DCP-4020C USB Scanner is properly activated. The device driver also puts in place a software based interface that allows the computer user to configure the various attributes associated with the scanning process.
