A scanner can also fall under the classification of an image capture device. This is because it has the capability of converting hard copy documents into their digital image format. The files created by the scanning process are actually image files which can be treated with post processing effects the same way that a photograph can be subjected to. The device driver for the Microtek ScanMaker IIG makes it possible to extend this functionality to the host computer system. Once connected to the appropriate communication port the corresponding device driver will provide the necessary details that will allow the host operating system to correctly identify its presence as well as its capabilities. These data are likewise known to the installed software applications to allow them to take advantage of the feature sets delivered by the Microtek ScanMaker IIG device. By installing the correct device driver the computer user gains the flexibility of inserting an image directly from the scanning device into virtually any type of productivity program.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The Microtek ScanMaker IIG device driver is also considered as TWAIN compliant consistent with most imaging hardware components. The use of this technology makes it possible for different software applications to make use of the final output file produced by the scanning process. Although considered as type of imaging component, the device driver can function with other technologies that will allow the scanning process to generate different types of files. For example when used in conjunction with an Optical Character Recognition software application the scanned material can be imported into a word processing program. It can then be subjected to the same editing and proofreading techniques just like any other type of textual document. This process made possible by the joint execution of two technologies allows the extraction of the textual contents from the final image file. The software application supported by the Optical Character Recognition technology has the ability to differentiate and recreate the letters in their textual content. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Microtek ScanMaker IIG errors before installing any driver updates.
