Re: Using A Scanner

James Bentley

Around 4 or 5 years ago, Freedom Scientific tried to sell me some kind of a camera for scanning because my Cannon scanner wouldn’t work with my newly upgraded Windows 10.  I think the link below will allow you to find and download drivers and software for most of the older Cannon scanners.  Including for Windows 10.  Both architectures.
Note, My scanner model is:
CanoScan LiDE 220
Hope this helps,

Hi Kevin,
It is 9, but I have used it with this scanner, long ago.
Anyone here have some canon scanner software?

What version of OpenBook are you using?  This happened to me once, I was using OB 9 and my scanner was too old!  Try emailing freedom scientific and tell them the scanner and if it’s compatible!

Using Windows 7 64 and latest Jaws.

I have Open Book installed, but it is not recognizing my Canon Scanner.

It is an N650U.

I tried to find drivers at, but they said that there are no drivers for my OS, that they are not needed.

I looked in control panel scanners and cameras, and it shows up there.

So I'm wondering, Does the latest Jaws have the ability to utilize a scanner to do OCR?

I know I could probably use another program to take a photo and use the Jaws cursor on that, but I would prefer to avoid that extra part.

Otherwise, does anyone know how I can get the OB to find my scanner?
