Scanning software

Does anyone use third-party scanning software with DTP? I’m particularly interested in opinions on Exactscan vs Vuescan vs Prizmo. I’m trialling Exactscan at the moment and I like it, but it’s the most expensive of the 3 options and am wondering whether the functionality of Vuescan and Prizmo is about the same. I’m planning on buying a Scansnap scanner in the next couple of months.

Thanks a lot.

ScanSnap scanners are bundled with OCR software.

The bundled ScanSnap Manager is all you need. It does everything, as well as OCR (using ABBY Finereader), as Korn says.

Worth spending $5 on the The Unofficial ScanSnap Setup Guide as the official one is heavy going.

Thanks for that guys
