CHOOSING THE PAPER RETURN POSITION
Push lightly on the Paper Return to open and rotate the Paper Return into position.
When the Paper Return is closed, any item scanned will exit out of the back of the scanner. When the Paper Return

NOTE: the Paper Return should be closed when scanning plastic cards, business cards, and any other type of thick
paper. These items will hit the paper return and stay in the paper feed path. We do not recommend you use the

Based on the recommended full installation of the scanner driver and the Visioneer OneTouch software,
OneTouch is your main scanning interface for using the scanner.
The OneTouch Button Panel, that you see on the computer screen, shows the pre-set function for each button
(such as Email) and the icon of the destination (called the Destination Application) where the images will be
sent when scanning is finished.
The OneTouch button panel shows which
application the button is configured to send
images to.
SCANNING AND CONFIGURING ONETOUCH
37
DEFAULT ONETOUCH SETTINGS
When you installed the scanner, the software configured each OneTouch button with appropriate settings
consisting of: a Destination Application, a Scan Configuration, and a File Format. The button names, such as Email
or Copy, indicate the original factory settings for a button. You can change any of these settings. Please see
Changing the Button Settings on page 40 for instructions.
For example, the Email button is set up to scan documents then immediately attach them to a new email
message in your default email program. The email application will default to the email program specified in the
internet options of Internet Explorer.
A folder icon for a button means that the button is set up to archive the scanned item. The scanner sends the
scanned image directly to a folder without opening the image first in a software application.
A question mark for a button means your computer does not have the appropriate software or hardware for the
initial factory settings.
If the OneTouch OmniPage Module is not installed, then the options for sending to word processing applications
such as Microsoft Word will not be available. The OneTouch OmniPage module is installed automatically when
you install Visioneer OneTouch from the installation disc.
NOTE: The default page size in each configuration is based on your computer’s Windows Measurement system
selection of U.S. (United States) or Metric units.
•
•
If U.S. is the selected measurement, the default page size in each profile will be based on the United States
standard paper sizes such as 8.5 x 11 inches.
If Metric is the selected measurement, the default page size in each profile is based on the ISO 216 standard
and the majority of the profiles will default to A4.

distributing the file to multiple destinations. Please refer to Scanning to Multiple Destinations on page 100.
Instant delivery—enables image transfer to the destination while scanning is in progress, provided that Create
Single Image Files is also selected. If Create single image files is not selected, image transfer occurs after all
pages have been scanned.
Show progress window—select this option to display the progress window of the document(s) during scanning.
Use job separator when scanning multiple pages—select this option to have the scanner separate multiple
page scan jobs into separate files when scanning is complete.
•
When a blank page is detected—select this option to have a new file created each time a blank page is
detected in the stack of pages being scanned. Note that when scanning duplex, both sides of the page must
be blank.
•
When the number of images reaches—select this option, and input a number in the box, to have a new
file created each time the number of images scanned reaches the number you input in this field. Note that
when scanning duplex, the number of images detected is twice the number of pages scanned. For example,
if you input “5” in the field, and scan 10 pages, 20 images are captured, and you will get 4 separate files with
5 images in each file.
Please refer to Scanning with Job Separation on page 103 for detailed information about scanning with job
separation, and how it works with other options in OneTouch.
Use custom file naming—select this option to enable the input field so that you can specify the file name for
your scanned document(s). You can specify a different file name for each OneTouch button. When this option is
not select, the file name is automatically generated by OneTouch for all scans.

type into the input field and/or select token options from the list.
•
Type the file name you want into the input field. Note that you cannot input these characters in a file name: \
/:*?“<>|
When inputting a file name, the file name must be unique, otherwise every scan created would overwrite
the previous scan. The menu to the right of the input field contains a list of tokens you can select to create
unique file names. These tokens include counting numbers, date and time values, number of pages scanned,
and so on. If the button name is not unique, you will see an on-screen notification that a {BatchID} and {#b}
will be inserted into the name.

Technical Note
Some destination application links, such as the NewSoft Presto! BizCard software, require a specific filename
format for the images that have been sent to the link to open correctly in the application. For example, when
scanning duplex, if the image token {#03b} is not included in the filename, then each image sent will be regarded
as a separate scan, and instead of one file with 2 pages you will have 2 files. As each destination application link is
different, there is no standard filename type you can create to use for all destinations. If you scan and the images
are not grouped in the file(s) as needed, try deselecting Use custom file naming and then scan again.

The format names in the Select format panel indicates the file type extension for the scanned file.
Text Formats; TEXT
is only one of several
text formats
available.
Image Formats. The BMP, JPG,
and PDF image formats have
right-click menu options.
CREATE SINGLE IMAGE FILES
The TIFF and PDF formats, as well as the text file formats, support multiple page documents in a single file. If you
are scanning as a TIFF or PDF format, or as one of the text formats, and want one file created for each image
scanned, select Create single image files. Note that this option is automatically selected and disabled if you have
selected a format that only supports single pages, such as BMP, PNG, GIF, JPG, or JP2.
IMAGE FORMATS
Select an image file format for photos, artwork or other documents that you want to save as images. BMP and TIFF
are standard image file formats generally used if you want to do additional image processing, such as photo
touch-up or color correction.

VISIONEER ROADWARRIOR 3 SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Right-click on the BMP icon to access the GIF and PNG image formats. When you select either of these formats,
the format panel will change the BMP icon to the selected image format icon.
BMP—the *.bmp (bitmap) format is generally used when you want to do additional
image processing, such as photo touch-up or color correction, as very little image
compression is used when creating the file. When scanning in color or grayscale, BMP
scans result in the largest file size of the image formats.
GIF—the *.gif (graphics interchange format) format is generally used when putting
images on a website or server, as image compression can reduce the file size by
approximately 95% when compared to a BMP file of the same image. Company logos
and small pictures on a webpage are often GIF images. The GIF compression, and
limited color range, can result in the medium and large images looking grainy or
pixilated.
PNG—the *.png (portable network graphics) format is another common image format
for website graphics. Like GIF, the PNG compression greatly reduces the file size when
compared to a BMP file of the same image. However, the PNG compression is different
from GIF compression in that PNG images look better when scaled. Therefore, PNG is
often used in place of GIF for company logos with a lot of detail, clickable buttons,
medium sized pictures, and so on.
TIFF—the *.tif (tagged image file format) format is another image type that is often
used for photo editing. When scanning in color, it produces a file of similar quality and
size to a BMP file. However, when scanning in Black & White, the TIF compression
produces the smallest file size of all the image types without losing image quality. TIFF
also supports multi-page image files.
Right-click on the JPG icon to access the JP2 image format. When you select JP2, the format panel will change the
JPG icon to the JP2 format icon.
JPG—the *.jpg (joint photographic experts group) format is a common image format
for transferring pictures electronically, such as posting to a website or sending via
email, as JPG image files are smaller than BMP and TIFF files. You can change the level of
compression for the picture file to have better quality or a smaller file size.
SCANNING AND CONFIGURING ONETOUCH
55
JP2—the *.jpg2 (joint photographic experts group 2000) format is the new JPEG
standard. This new JPG file type has improved compression for better image quality at
smaller file sizes. Please refer to the official JPEG website at www.jpeg.org for more
information about this file format, and a list of applications that can view and/or open
this file type.
To select a JPEG file size:
1.
Select JPG as the page format.
2.
Right-click on the JPG icon.
A menu opens.
3.
Choose the file size/image quality option for your scanned images.
Minimize Size—smallest file size, lowest image quality.
Normal—medium file size, some loss of image quality.
Maximize Quality—largest file size, minimal loss of image quality.
Your selection pertains only to the button currently selected on the OneTouch Properties window. Other
buttons that have JPG selected as the file format are not affected, so you can set the JPG file size/image
quality independently for each button.
4.
Click OK or Apply on the OneTouch Properties window.
Right-click on the PDF format icon to change the image quality or select the option to make the scanned PDF file
PDF-A compliant.
PDF—the *.pdf (portable document format) image format is often used to create
images of text pages. The image compression of PDF files creates relatively small file
sizes when scanning multiple page files in color. While the TIFF image format also
supports multiple page files, when scanning in color the TIFF files are often too large to
be transferred electronically. The PDF file format is often used for posting multiple page
files to websites, sending via email, and permanent storage. As with the JPG file format,
you can change the PDF quality to reduce the file size or improve the image quality.
Adobe® Reader®, or other PDF viewer software, must be installed on your computer for
you to view PDF files.
Using PDF-A when scanning as PDF, means the files are compliant with the ISO-19005-1
standard for permanent archival of electronic documents. More information about this
standard can be found at www.pdfa.org.
To select a PDF file size:
1.
Select PDF as the page format.

TEXT FORMATS
Selecting the text format option also selects OCR processing as an automatic step for scanning. Therefore, when
you scan a document with the text format selected, the text portions of the document are automatically
converted to editable text.
Select a text format for documents with text or numbers, such as a business letter, report, or spreadsheet. The text
format icon has several file formats available, depending on the Destination Application you select.
Detailed information about these text file formats, and instructions for setting up the OCR options, are in the

SMTP
The SMTP destination link allows scans to be sent directly to an email address, through an SMTP server, from
OneTouch. Please contact your server administrator for the server information you need to configure this link.
Alternatively, have your site administrator or IT professional configure this link for you. Configuration of the SMTP
server settings and user accounts is outside the scope of this document.
Supported file types—all image and text file formats, except HTML, are available when scanning to an SMTP
server. Note that text file formats are only available if an OCR module or application is installed. Please refer to
Text Formats on page 56 to see a list of text file formats that are available when OCR is installed.

EMAIL APPLICATIONS
Scanning to an email application, such as Outlook or Windows Mail, attaches the scanned image to a blank email
message. You then fill in the recipient email address(es) and send the message. You need to have configured an
email application before you can scan to it using OneTouch. If you do not have your email application set up prior
to scanning, the default Windows email application will open and ask you to configure your user information.
Please contact your IT department, server administrator, or other group that provided you the email information
for setup instructions. Configuring an email application and user account is outside the scope of this document.
Supported file types—all image and text file formats, except HTML, are available when scanning to an email

TEXT EDITORS
Scanning to a text editing application, such as Microsoft’s Notepad or WordPad, automatically converts the text in
the scanned image into editable text using Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
Supported file types—the text file formats and destination applications are only available if an OCR module or
application is installed. Please refer to Text Formats on page 56 to see a list of text file formats that are available
when OCR is installed. Additionally, the available file formats are application specific, for example Microsoft’s
WordPad can open *.txt and *.rtf files, so only those two file types will be available when scanning to WordPad.
Note that when there is no OCR module or application installed, the format panel will not contain a text icon and
there will be no text editor applications in the Select destination list.
Destination type—this destination type is classified as a “Text Based Link”. To make it available in the destination
list, you must select Text editing applications on the Options tab in the OneTouch Properties window. If the text
editing application you are using does not appear in the Select destination list, you can add the application using
the Text Documents OneTouch Link Properties window.

PDF APPLICATIONS
PDF destinations are applications that can open and/or edit the Adobe PDF file format.
Supported file types—applications in the PDF destination group support the *.pdf file format. When the
OmniPage module or software is installed, OneTouch includes an option to scan as sPDF or nPDF. Selecting either
of these two formats still creates a *.pdf file, but the “s” and “n” letters indicate that OCR will process the image
before sending the file to the PDF application.
•
sPDF—this format creates a *.pdf file that contains the original image of the scanned page, with a hidden
text layer that allows you to search for text in the file.
•
nPDF—this format creates a *.pdf file that can be edited in a PDF application. Any pictures in the scanned
image are isolated from the text, the text on the page is recognized and turned into editable text, and the
pictures are placed back into the document in the same flow as the original document.
Destination type—this destination type is classified as “PDF Link”. To make it available in the destination list, you
must select PDF applications on the Options tab in the OneTouch Properties window.
If the PDF application you are using does not appear in the Select destination list, you can add the application
using the Text Documents OneTouch Link Properties window.

SCANNING WITH JOB SEPARATION
Use job separation to have OneTouch create a new file each time a separator is detected when scanning a
multiple page batch. For example, if you want to scan financial statements from several different banks, you can
place a stack of statements in the scanner and OneTouch will separate each statement into a different file based
on your selected job separator.
1.
Open the OneTouch Properties window.
2.
Select the Destination Application, File Format, and Scan Configuration applicable to your scanning batch.
Make sure the option Create single image files is not selected. If this option is selected, the job separation
features on the Options tab will be disabled.
3.
Click on the Options tab in the OneTouch Properties window.
4.
Click on the down arrow next to the Select Button list to select the button you want to modify.
Note that the options in this window are specific to each OneTouch button.

5.
Click on the option Use job separator when scanning multiple pages.
6.
Select one of the two job separation options:
When a blank page is detected—a new file will be created after a blank page is fed through the scanner.
The blank page is discarded from the scanned image and the new file starts with the next page in the
document stack. Place a blank page, in the document you are scanning, at each place where you want a new
file created when scanning is complete.
When you are scanning in Duplex mode, both sides of the page must be blank for this job separation option
to work.
•
Sensitivity—you can adjust the sensitivity level of the blank page detection. For instance, depending
on the paper weight, color mode, or image processing options selected, you might get varying results.
Changing the sensitivity level allows you to fine-tune the accuracy of the blank page detection.
When the number of images reaches—input the maximum number of images you want in the scanned
file. The scanner will create a new file each time that number is reached.
When you are scanning in Duplex mode, the number of images captured is double the number of pages in
the scanner. For example, if you are scanning 12 double-sided pages it is counted as 24 images. If you want
the stack split in half, the number of images reached would be 12.
7.
When you are done making changes, click on OK to save the changes and close the window.
8.
Place your documents in the scanner and start scanning.
When scanning is finished, each file will be sent to the destination location or application you have selected on
the button tab.
Technical Note
•
When Instant delivery is also selected on the Options tab, each file will be sent as it is created.
SCANNING AND CONFIGURING ONETOUCH
105
The options on the Page Settings tab, in the Scan Configuration Properties window will affect the job separation
options as described below:
Skip blank originals
•
The Sensitivity you set for this feature is the one that is used when scanning. The sensitivity level you set in
the Options tab will be ignored.
•
When you are scanning in Simplex mode and the selected job separator is When a blank page is detected,
the job separation occurs first and a new file will be created each time a blank page is detected. If you want a
single file created with the blank page discarded, deselect the job separation feature on the Options tab.
Note that when scanning Duplex, both sides of the page must be blank for the job separation to occur. If
both sides of a scanned page are blank, the job separation occurs first and a new file will be created each
time a blank page is detected. If you want a single file created with the blank page discarded, deselect the
job separation feature on the Options tab or remove the blank page from your scanning batch.
•
If you select When the number of images reaches, and input a number in the control box, any blank pages
will be discarded first, and then the number of images scanned will be counted. For example, if you scan 12
pages and 3 are blank, the total number of images counted for the job separation will be 9 not 12.

SCANNING WITH OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION (OCR)
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) converts text and numbers on a scanned page into editable text and
numbers. You can then work with the text and numbers to edit, spell check, change font or type size, sort,
calculate, and so forth.
NOTE: Visioneer recommends that all OCR processing use the original factory settings for OCR
scanning that came with your scanner. When scanning with other settings, use at least 300 dpi
for the resolution. If the original documents are of poor quality or have a small type font, 400
dpi can be used as the maximum resolution.
The OneTouch OmniPage Module must be installed on your computer in order to use the OCR options with the
OneTouch software and your Visioneer scanner. The OneTouch OmniPage Module was automatically installed
when you installed your driver from the installation disc.
NOTE: Some of the illustrations in this section may not look exactly as they appear on your
computer’s screen. The differences are minor and do not affect the steps to use the new
features.
To scan with OCR:
1.
Open the OneTouch Properties window.
2.
Select a text editing program in the Select Destination list, then select a text file format in the Select
format panel.
For example, if you want to edit your document in Microsoft’s WordPad, select that application then choose
a file format such as TEXT or RTF.
3.
Click on OK to save the changes and close the OneTouch Properties window.
4.
Press or click the OneTouch button you set to scan with OCR.
Your scanned pages appear in the Destination Application with the text ready for editing and other text
processing.

TEXT FORMATS
You select the text format option by clicking on the text icon on the OneTouch Properties window.
This is the text format
icon. This example of
the text format icon is
sPDF.
Selecting the text format option also selects OCR processing as an automatic step for scanning. Therefore, when
you scan a document with the text format selected, the text portions of the document are automatically
converted to editable text.
As you select Destination Applications that are text applications, the text format icon changes to match the file
type of the application. In some cases, the Destination Application supports several file types, and you can rightclick on the icon to choose the particular file type for that application.
The specific file format is the file name extension on the text format icon.
The specific text format; this
example is for Rich Text
Format (.rtf).
To select a file type for the text format:

not affected.
Simple Text—the .txt file format. Text with no formatting; used by the standard
Microsoft Notepad application.
Rich Text Format—the .rtf file format. Text that retains formatting when converted.
Available with Microsoft WordPad and Word.
Word Document—the .doc file format used by Microsoft Word.
Comma Delimited—the .csv file format; used for database or spreadsheet data with
fields, when the document is converted into editable text the fields are maintained.
Excel Spreadsheet—the .xls file format used by Microsoft Excel.
HTML Document—the .htm file format used to create web pages.
Searchable PDF—the .pdf file format used by Adobe Acrobat. This format converts
scanned text into PDF with an invisible text layer for searching.
SCANNING AND CONFIGURING ONETOUCH
109
Normal PDF—the.pdf file format used by Adobe Acrobat. This format converts scanned
text into a PDF with the text ready for editing in a PDF editing program.
Additional options are available on the menu for the sPDF and nPDF text formats. The three image quality
settings are:
•
Minimize Size—smallest file size, lowest image quality.
•
Normal—medium file size, some loss of image quality.
•
Maximize Quality—largest file size, no loss of image quality.
NOTE: Documents scanned with nPDF and sPDF automatically include OCR processing. If the
processing does not recognize a large number of the text characters in the document, change
the image quality setting and re-scan the document. For example, change from Minimize Size
to Normal to see if the text recognition improves.
The Use MRC option is a special processing procedure for documents scanned with the PDF format.
•
Use MRC—MRC stands for Mixed Raster Content. MRC is an advanced technique for optimizing the image
quality of scanned documents. Without MRC, the scanned image is produced using a single process to
capture and display the image on the computer screen, even if the document contains both text and
graphics. With MRC, the image is produced using separate processes for text, graphics, and other elements
on the document page. The result is clearer graphics and sharper text characters. Scans with Use MRC
selected may take slightly longer to complete the processing. Select Use MRC for documents with harderto-read text or lower-quality graphics to get the best possible scan output image. The Use MRC option is
available for sPDF and PDF.

SELECTING ONETOUCH OMNIPAGE OCR OPTIONS
The software you installed for your scanner includes a set of advanced OCR options integrated with OneTouch.
NOTE: the OCR options apply globally to all the OneTouch Destination Applications that
perform OCR. For example, if you select the OCR options for Adobe Acrobat, they also apply to
WordPad.
To select OCR options available from OneTouch:
1.
Open the OneTouch Properties window.
2.
Select a Destination Application that has one of the text format file types as the page format, such as
Microsoft Word or WordPad.
3.
Right-click on the page format icon to see the menu.
4.

The OCR Properties window opens with the OCR tab selected.
SCANNING AND CONFIGURING ONETOUCH
111
THE OCR TAB
The options shown on the OCR tab window are for spellchecking scanned text, replacing missing or
unrecognized characters, and setting the speed and quality levels of the OCR processing.
1.
Choose the options you want from the OCR window.
•
•
Languages in Document—click on the language(s) in list that correspond to the languages in the
documents to be scanned. You can click on multiple languages. These are the languages that will be
recognized during the OCR process. For faster and more reliable language recognition, select only the
languages in the documents.
The languages are in alphabetical order. Type the first letter of a language’s name to jump to its section
in the list.
Use languages and dictionaries to improve accuracy—select this option to automatically check the
validity of the recognized words. An OCR engine looks at each letter or symbol on the page
individually, then “guesses” what the letter or symbol is based on the shape. Therefore, the OCR engine
may have more than one guess for a particular letter or symbol, a “best guess”, a “second-best guess”,
and so on. This option tells the OCR engine to look through the dictionary to validate its best guess for
the letters in that word; if its best guess is not in the dictionary, it checks for the second-best guess, and
so on.
For example, if the word “house” appears in the original document but the OCR engine is 75% sure that
the “o” is actually an “a”, the finished document would have the word “hause”. Turning this option on
tells the OCR engine to look at the other letters in the word, check to see which version of the word is in
the dictionary, and output the correct word “house” in the final document.
The OCR engine does not automatically correct misspelled words that were present in the original
document.
When dictionaries are selected, the terms in those dictionaries are used to check the spelling. If this is
option is not selected, User Dictionaries and Professional Dictionaries cannot be selected.
112
VISIONEER ROADWARRIOR 3 SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
•
2.
User Dictionary—a user dictionary is your personal dictionary with words that you want the OCR
engine to reference for better accuracy when converting the document into editable text. For example,
if you scan documents with highly technical terms or acronyms not found in typical dictionaries, you
can add them to your personal dictionary. You can also add names that you expect to be in the
documents too. This way, as the OCR process recognizes each letter or symbol, there is a higher chance
that the technical term or name will be correctly spelled in the final document. You can create multiple
user dictionaries. See the section Creating Your Own Dictionaries on page 112.
Click the menu arrow and select a user dictionary from the list.
If you select [none] as the user dictionary, the text will be validated using the terms in the dictionaries
for the selected languages, as well as any professional dictionaries if they are selected.
The label [current] is next to the currently-select user dictionary.
•
Professional Dictionaries—these are legal and medical dictionaries containing highly specialized
words and phrases. The options are: Dutch Legal, Dutch Medical, English Financial, English Legal,
English Medical, French Legal, French Medical, German Legal, and German Medical. Select the
appropriate dictionary for the OCR engine to use to validate the scanned text.
•
Reject Character—this is the character that the OCR process inserts for an unrecognizable text
character. For example, if the OCR process cannot recognize the J in REJECT, and ~ is the reject
character, the word would appear as RE~ECT in your document. The ~ is the default reject character.
Type the character you want to use in the Reject Character box. Try to choose a character that will not
appear in your documents.
•
Missing Character—this is the character that the OCR process inserts for a missing text character. A
missing text character is one that the OCR process recognizes, but cannot represent because that
character is not available for the selected language. For example, if the document contains the text
symbol “Ç” but the OCR process cannot represent that character, then every place “Ç” appears, the OCR
process substitutes the missing character symbol. The caret (^) is the default symbol for the missing
character.
Type the character you want to use in the Missing Character box. Try to choose a character that will
not appear in your documents.
•
Recognition Quality—drag the slider to the left or right to set the degree of accuracy for the OCR
process. The higher the accuracy, the longer the OCR process requires to complete. For clean, highlylegible documents, you can set the recognition quality to a lower level to produce results more quickly.
Click OK or Apply.
These options will now apply to the OCR processing when you select any text format as the page format.
CREATING YOUR OWN DICTIONARIES
You can create multiple dictionaries for your personal use. For example, you might have different dictionaries for
separate work projects, especially if each project uses different acronyms and terminology.
To create a personal dictionary:
1.
Open any word processing program, such as Microsoft Word, WordPad, or Notepad.
2.
Create a new document in the word processing program.
3.
Type each word you want in your new dictionary, followed by a carriage return. Make sure to spell the words
correctly as they will be used for spellchecking.
Here is an example of what the text file might look like:

The file does not have to include every word you want in the dictionary. You will be able to edit the list later.
In fact, the file does not have to contain any text at all, and you could add the words using the editing
options. However, if the list of words is long, it’s usually faster to type them in the word processing program.
Note also that the words do not need to be alphabetized.

THE FORMAT TAB
The options on the Format tab window are for setting the input and output formats for the scanned documents.
1.
Click the Format tab and choose the options you want for both the input and output formats.
Input Format Options
•
Automatic—choose this option to let the OCR process determine the format of the pages. Typically
you select this option when the document has different or unknown types of layouts, pages with
multiple columns and a table, or pages containing more than one table. The OCR process will then
determine if text is in columns, an item is a graphic or text, and tables are present.
•
Single column no table—choose this option if the document contains only one column of text and no
tables. Business letters are normally in this form. You can also use this option for documents with words
or numbers in columns if you do not want them placed in a table or decolumnized or treated as
separate columns.
•
Multiple columns, no table—choose this option if some document pages contain text in columns
and you want it kept in separate columns, similar to the original layout. If table-like data is
encountered, it is placed in columns, not in a gridded table.
•
Single column with table—choose this option if your document contains only one column of text
and a table. The table will be placed in a grid in the Destination Application you have selected. You can
later specify whether to export it in a grid or as tab-separated text columns.
•
Spreadsheet—choose this option if the entire document consists of a table that you want to export to
a spreadsheet program, or have treated as a table. No flowing text or graphics will be detected.
Output Format Options
•
•
Automatic—the document will be formatted as close to its original as possible. The OneTouch
software will adjust its settings to the most appropriate for the document being scanned in order to
match your selected output format. The output quality will be maximized and the processing time
minimized.
No formatting—the document will be plain text, one column, left-aligned in a single font and font
size. You can then export the plain text to nearly all file types and target applications.
SCANNING AND CONFIGURING ONETOUCH

•
2.
Retain fonts and paragraphs—this output format retains the font and paragraph styling, including
graphics and tables without columnized text, but does not retain layout formatting. If the document is
being scanned as an Excel spreadsheet, each detected table or spreadsheet becomes a separate
worksheet, while other content is placed on the last worksheet.
•
Flowing page—this format preserves the original layout of the pages, including columns. This is done
wherever possible with column and indent settings, but not with text boxes or frames. Text will then
flow from one column to the other, which does not happen when text boxes are present.
•
True page—this output format uses absolute positioning on the page to keep the original layout of
the pages, including columns. This is done with text, picture and table boxes and frames. True Page is
the only choice for documents scanned with the PDF format. It is not available for the TXT, RTF, CSV, or
XLS formats.
•
Spreadsheet—this output format produces results in a tabular form with each page becoming a
separate worksheet. The worksheets can then be opened in a spreadsheet application. The
Spreadsheet output option is only available for documents scanned with the XLS format.
Click OK or Apply.
These options will now apply to the OCR processing when you select any text format as the page format.

7.
Auto detect color—Determines if a document contains color or not and produces the appropriate
scanned image. Typically, Auto Color Detect is used when you have a stack of pages to scan, some color
and others not. Instead of you having to change the scan settings from Color to Black&White and back
again, the scanner can choose the correct settings automatically.
•
Skip blank originals—Recognizes when a page is blank and removes its image. For instance, if you are
scanning a stack of pages that includes a blank page, its image will not be included with the other
images from the stack.
•
Rotate image—Select an option in this list to have the final image rotated when scanning is complete.
•
Perform edge cleanup—Select this option to have the software remove any thin lines that may be
around the edges in the scanned image. Edge Cleanup only applies if AutoCrop and AutoDeskew are
selected so the software can determine where the edges are located. Therefore, selecting Edge
Cleanup will also select AutoCrop and AutoDeskew. This option is only available when scanning in
Black&White.
•
Despeckle—Speckles are small spots on an image that the scanner interpreted as a valid part of the
document. The Despeckle option identifies these spots and removes them. This option is only available
when scanning in Black&White.
•
Color dropout—Color dropout is the ability of your scanner to automatically remove a color from a
scanned image. For example, if you are scanning a letter with a red watermark, you can choose to filter
out the red so the scanned letter just shows the text and not the red watermark. Color dropout applies
to Black & White or Grayscale scanning modes.
•
Bit depth reduction—Click the drop down menu and select an option from the list. The Bit depth
reduction options are only available when scanning in black and white.
Error diffusion, Bayer, and Halftone patterns are the intentional application of noise (dithering) in the
image to help alleviate banding when scanning in binary (black and white) mode. For example, if you
scan a color photo in black and white, the image file will have large blocks of black and white and the
image barely recognizable. Dithering the image creates a black and white image that is recognizable.
Dynamic threshold attempts to evaluate the scanned page and automatically adjust the brightness
and contrast levels to produce the best quality image when scanning in black and white.
Click OK or Apply to add the Acuity options to your scan configuration.
The Acuity icon on the top of the
OneTouch Panel and on the scan
configuration remind you that the
scan will use the Acuity settings.

applications and how to initiate a scan from within that application, including some of the applications which
may have been provided with your scanner. Please refer to the application’s user guide for instructions on using
the application and accessing the scanner.
•
Visioneer OneTouch: Open the Visioneer OneTouch properties window and under the configuration list
select Configure Before Scan. Click on OK to save the changes and close Visioneer OneTouch. The next
time you scan using that button, the scanner interface will open for you to set the scan options and start
scanning.

CHOOSING TWAIN OR WIA
A note about your scanner and the TWAIN standard:
TWAIN is a widely recognized standard that computers use to receive images from scanners and digital cameras.
The TWAIN scanning interface can be accessed from any TWAIN scanning application you have installed on the
computer. The driver interface described herein is the TWAIN driver that has been developed for your scanner.
The interface described in this section is the one provided with your scanner and you will see it when scanning
from PaperPort or OmniPage. Other TWAIN compliant scanning applications may also access this interface.
However, there are some applications that have their own TWAIN interface. If you are scanning from a software
application, and see the interface shown in this section, you can use these instructions to scan with the TWAIN
interface. If you do not see this TWAIN interface, please refer to your scanning application’s user guide for
instructions.
A note about your scanner and Microsoft WIA (Windows Image Acquisition):
The WIA platform has been developed to enable image transfer from devices using standard Windows
applications, such as Paint or Windows Fax and Scan, without the need to install additional scanning software.
Microsoft has developed its own interface for using the scanner with the Windows applications, as well as any
other WIA compatible applications you may have installed. However, when using a WIA 2.0 compatible
application, the default behavior will display the TWAIN interface as described in this document. You can change
the driver behavior to show the Windows interface instead of the custom interface described herein. Please refer
to Driver Settings for the Hardware Properties and Interface Behavior on page 163 for more information.
Please refer to your Windows documentation for WIA scanning instructions if you do not see the interface
described below, or if you have any questions regarding Windows scanning applications.

USING THE PREVIEW WINDOW
Clicking the Preview button will display the preview window for the scanner interface. Use the preview option if
you want to scan and display a sample image that reflects the current settings in the main interface. After the
preview is displayed, you can then adjust the settings in the main interface until you are happy with how the
sample image looks. The preview window is also where you can define custom scan regions. Please refer to Scan
Regions for instructions on creating and scanning custom regions.
To use the preview window:
1.
Select the initial scan settings you want to use for the preview image and scanning.
If you want to modify the settings for a particular preset, make sure you select that preset before continuing.
2.
Click the Preview button to open the preview window.
If there is a page in the scanner, the scanner will scan and display a sample image in the preview window. If
you do not have a page in the scanner when you click Preview, the preview window will open and display an
empty scan area. You will need to place a page in the scanner and click Get preview to scan and display a
sample image.
3.
The preview window displays the scan area and the current scan region. This scan region reflects the paper
size currently selected in the main interface. When you pass the mouse cursor over the scan region it will
highlight for you to move or resize it. If you move, resize, or add scan regions the main interface will display
User defined for the page size. Please refer to Scan Regions for instructions on creating, resizing and
deleting regions.
Click the zoom in or zoom out button to zoom in or out on the preview image in 15% steps. Click the up or
down arrows for the Zoom level box to zoom in or out on the preview image in 5% steps. Click the zoom to

When you scan, any settings you adjusted are automatically saved to the Last used settings preset. These
settings are not retained in a preset until you click Save in the main interface to save the settings to the current
preset, or save them to a new preset using the Save as dialogue. If you select a different preset from the Presets
list before scanning, the changes you made will be discarded.
SCAN REGIONS
You can use the preview window to create custom scan regions for the scanner to use for scanning. For example,
if you want to scan only a specific area of the image, you can move and resize a scan region to focus only on the
area you want to scan. The final image will be only the size of the region you set.
Important: do not change the page size for the scanned image after you create custom regions. When you have
set a custom region in the preview window, the page size field will display “user defined” indicating you have
specified one or more custom regions for scanning. Changing the page size after you create a custom region
discards the custom regions and sets a single scan region to the size you selected in the page size list.
Creating custom scan regions:
1.
Select the preset you want to use for scanning.
2.
In the main interface click Preview to open the preview window.
If no previous custom scan regions have been created for the preset you selected, the preview window will
have a single scan region that is the page size for the current preset. This region will be labeled number 1
and be displayed as an outline in the preview area.

BASIC OPTIONS
Click the drop down menu to select the color mode you want to use.
•
Color scans the document in color, creating a full color copy of an original document or photograph. Color
scans have the largest file size.
•
Gray scans the document using varying shades of gray to reproduce the document. The grayscale scan
mode is often used when scanning documents or graphics where the original color does not need to be
retained, but the graphics need to be legible. Grayscale scanning preserves the graphic quality while
keeping the file size less than that of a full color scan.
•
Black and White scans the document in bitonal where everything on the page is either black or white. This
setting is often used when scanning typed or written documents. When there are not a lot of graphics, or if
the graphics are not needed, this setting is ideal for archiving documents to a server or on a disc, send

RESOLUTION
The resolution determines the amount of detail you can see in the scanned image. Resolution is the clarity of the
image measured in dots-per-inch (dpi).
Move the slider left or right to change the resolution for the scanned image. The higher the resolution, the clearer
the image. However, high resolution scans also produce larger file sizes. The available range displayed in the slider
area are within the minimum and maximum range supported by your scanner. The resolution slider will always
display the correct range for the current scanner.
Choosing resolution values
Typically, when making copies of black and white documents, 100–150 dpi will create an image of similar quality
to the original. When making copies of color documents or photographs, 150–200 dpi will create an image of
similar quality to the original.
Higher resolution settings are generally used for creating an image that can be enlarged without losing image
quality, but take longer to scan.
Some resolution settings for typically scanned items are:
•
Text document letters, forms, or other typed black and white documents – 100 dpi to 150 dpi
•
Text document letters or forms with hand printed text – 150 dpi
•
Text document (for OCR) forms, letters, memos, or spreadsheets – 300 dpi
•
Business cards or other items with small print – 300 dpi
•
Color page with graphics or color photographs – 150 dpi
•
Color photographs of poor quality for image enhancement – 300 dpi

Depending on the scanner model and installed software, there may be more than one auto cropping option in
the interface.
•
Crop to original—select this option to let the scanner automatically determine the size of the item being
scanned. This option is only available if the scanner supports this feature. This option may occasionally be

COMPRESSION OPTIONS
There are two types of image compression functions used during scanning. The input compression option is
compressing the image when transferring it from the scanner to the TWAIN driver on the computer. The output
compression option is the TWAIN driver compressing the image before it sends the image to the scanning
application. In the scanning interface the input compression option is Compress transfers and the output option
is Compression.
Compress transfers
Select this option to have the scanner compress the image in Gray and Color scans. This reduces the file size and
allows for faster image transfer from the scanner to the computer. Once the compressed image is on the
computer, scanner’s driver will then uncompress the image, and perform any image processing functions that
have been selected in the scanning interface. The uncompressed image is then transferred to the scanning
application. With Compress transfers, a scanning application such as Nuance PDF Converter, will receive the
uncompressed image and save the image in whatever file format it uses. You can use the Quality slider to adjust
the level of compression you want to use.
When the Quality option is set to High quality, there is very little visual difference between a compressed scan
and an uncompressed scan. When the quality option is set to High compression, there may be a greater visual
difference between compressed and uncompressed scans.
Quality
You can fine tune the compression level by adjusting the quality slider between high compression and high
quality. When the quality level is set to high compression, the scanner will scan and transfer images faster than
high quality, but the image quality of the output scan will be lower.

149
Subsampling
The subsampling options allow you to select the encoding ratio between color information and luminosity.
Subsampling works by lowering the resolution of the RGB colors found in an image without affecting
luminescence of the image. This compresses the image to create smaller file sizes but it can sometimes result in
loss of image quality. Depending on the type of image being scanned, subsampling encoding may not have a
noticeable affect in the final image file. You should try test scans using the different levels of subsampling to make
sure you are happy with the image quality.
•
4:4:4—no subsampling and the ratio between color and luminosity remains unchanged.
•
4:2:2—mid-level ratio between color and luminosity.
•
4:1:1—highest ratio difference between color and luminosity, which results in saving the smallest file size.
Compression
This option is specific compression for file and memory transfers to an application. It is only available if the
application you are using can accept a compressed image file. For instance, if your scanning application is set to
receive JPEG compressed images, then the Compression field will display JPEG. Otherwise, the status for
Compression will always be disabled and display Uncompressed because the scanning application you are using
is requesting an uncompressed image.
The Compress transfers option described herein compresses the image for faster transfer from the scanner to
the computer. The driver uncompresses the image and transfers the uncompressed image to the scanning
application. The Compression option will often be disabled as most applications do not support receiving a
compressed image file from the scanner driver.
When this option is available, it is an advanced user and application option and should not be adjusted if you are
not familiar with the technology. However, if you are certain that you are using an application that can receive a
compressed image, and you want to be able to change the image compression type, you will need to enable user
adjustable compression in the scanning interface. Please refer to the Driver Settings section for instructions.
Please note that if you adjust this setting, and the application cannot actually accept the option you change, the
scanning interface and the application may crash. It is highly recommended that you leave the default options
and let the application set any image compression.

BRIGHTNESS
Brightness is the overall lightness of the image. Move the slider left or right to darken or lighten the image.
Adjusting the brightness level adjusts the tone of the pixels, without changing the true color of the pixels; such as
when adjusting hue.
Choosing brightness values
Adjusting the brightness level is based on how you want the image to appear and there is no standard to adhere
to. Below are some recommended options for brightness image correction based on the original document
quality.
•
Original documents of good quality - 50%
•
Pencil written letters, forms, or drawings - 25% to 40%
•
Faded pictures or old documents with faded text - 35% to 45%
•
Light colored carbon copy paper, such as yellow or pale pink or pale green, with light text - 45% to 55%
•
Newspaper or magazine pages - 55% to 70%
•
Book pages - 55% to 80%
•
Pictures taken inside or in the shade - 60% to 85%
Brightness works in conjunction with Contrast for image enhancement. When you are adjusting the brightness
level to improve the scanned image quality, try adjusting the contrast level as well. The contrast level is the range
between the lightest and darkest parts of the image. For example, if you scanned a document with notes written
in pencil, you may have to decrease the brightness level to get the handwritten notes to appear in the scanned
image. However, when decreasing the brightness, white starts to appear gray in the image. In that case, raise the
contrast level to make the differences between the lightest and darkest part of the image more defined.
Color image brightness examples
The examples below show the original image at the default setting of 50% brightness level, 25% brightness and
75% brightness. Adjusting the brightness level does not make the image completely black nor completely white.
Brightness: 25%
Brightness: 50%
Brightness: 75%
Technical note:
Most monitors have a brightness setting that is user adjustable. When viewing scanned images on-screen, versus
printing the image, the brightness setting of the monitor may affect how light or dark the scanned image looks
when compared to the original. If the scanned image is too different from the original image, or if adjusting the
scanned brightness level does not modify the image how you want, try adjusting the monitor's brightness level.
Refer to the monitor's user guide for adjusting the brightness level and see if the manufacturer has any
recommended settings.

Black background scanners:
Some scanners have a black background plate. A black background results in more precise cropping results and
skew detection. However, when scanning thin paper, such as multipart color forms or ruled writing paper, which
are less than 18lb paper weight, the background may “bleed” through into the final image and make the image
darker than it should be. In that case, try adjusting the brightness level between 60% and 80%.
CONTRAST
Contrast refers to the differences between the light and dark portions in the image. Move the slider left or right to
decrease or increase the contrast levels. Increasing the contrast level emphasizes the difference between the
lighter and darker portions of the image, decreasing the contrast de-emphasizes that difference.
Choosing contrast values
While Brightness adds the same amount of gray or white to all pixels in the image, Contrast adjusts the pixels
based on the pixel color level. For instance, increasing the contrast level will add white to light colored pixels and
gray to dark pixels to make the difference between color levels in the image crisper. Decreasing the contrast level
will have the opposite affect, where light colored pixels are modified with gray and dark pixels are modified with
white to make the transition of colors in the image appear smoother.
Adjusting the contrast level is based on how you want the image to appear and there is no standard to adhere to.
Contrast works in conjunction with brightness for image enhancement, when decreasing the brightness level, the
overall image becomes darker, in which case you may want to increase the contrast level so that the differences
between the lighter and darker portions of the image are clearer.
Below are some recommended options for contrast image correction based on the original document quality.
•
Original documents of good quality - 50%
•
Pencil written letters, forms, or drawings - 55% to 65%
•
Faded pictures or old documents with faded text - 60% to 70%
•
Light colored carbon copy paper, such as yellow or pale pink or pale green, with light text - 45% to 55%
•
Newspaper or magazine pages - 55% to 70%
•
Book pages - 60% to 75%
•
Pictures taken inside or in the shade - 40% to 60%

VISIONEER ROADWARRIOR 3 SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Technical note:
Most monitors have a contrast setting that is user adjustable. When viewing scanned images on-screen, versus
printing the image, the contrast setting of the monitor may affect how clear a scanned image looks when
compared to the original. If the scanned image is too different from the original image, or if adjusting the scanned
contrast level does not modify the image how you want, try adjusting the monitor's contrast level. Refer to the
monitor's user guide for adjusting the contrast level and see if the manufacturer has any recommended settings.
Black background scanners:
Some scanners have a black background plate. A black background results in more precise cropping results and
skew detection. However, when scanning thin paper, such as carbon copy paper or ruled writing paper, which are
less than 18lb paper weight, the background may “bleed” through into the final image and make the image
darker than it should be. In that case, try adjusting the brightness level between 40% and 60%, then adjust the
contrast level between 60% and 80%.
GAMMA
Gamma is the tone curve and starting point for image enhancement. Move the slider left or right to darken or
lighten the image. As you raise or lower the Gamma value, the values at which Brightness and Contrast affect
the image are changed. It is recommended that you keep the default gamma value, or adjust this setting before
adjusting the other options.
Choosing gamma values
As the gamma value is adjusted lower, the tone curve begins to straighten and the shadows of the image are
expanded, darkening the shadows without overall darkening the image with gray as seen with lowering the
brightness level. This way, the highlights and shadows in the image are maintained by saturating the pixels with
darker levels of the same color rather than adding gray to all colors.
As the gamma value is adjusted higher, the tone curve bends and the highlights of the image are expanded,
lightening the highlights without overall lightening the image with white as seen with raising the brightness
level. This way, the highlights and shadows in the image are maintained by saturating the pixels with lighter levels
of the same color rather than just adding white.
Adjusting the gamma level is based on how you want the image to appear and there is no standard to adhere to.
Color image gamma examples
The examples below show the original image at the default setting of 1.8 gamma level, then 1.0 gamma and 2.6
gamma. Adjusting the gamma level does not make the image completely black nor completely white.
Gamma: 1.0
Gamma: 1.8
Gamma: 2.6

scanned gamma level does not modify the image how you want, try adjusting the monitor's gamma level. Refer
to the monitor's user guide for adjusting the gamma level and see if the manufacturer has any recommended
settings.
INVERT IMAGE
The Invert image option reverses the color of each pixel in the scanned image.
When scanning in black and white, each pixel is reversed from black to white and white to black. When scanning
in grayscale each pixel is reversed to the opposite level of gray. When scanning in color each pixel is reversed to
the opposite color in the color wheel.
For example, you might choose this option if you are scanning pages that have been printed from newspaper
microfilm. Newspaper microfilm reverses black and white so that when viewed on a monitor, the text is white and
the paper is black.
The following example shows the original grayscale image and the inverted image.

MIRROR IMAGE
The Mirror image option flips the image left-to-right.
BIT DEPTH REDUCTION
The Bit depth reduction options are only available when scanning in black and white. Click the drop down menu
and select an option from the list.
Threshold and Dynamic threshold
Threshold enables you to set what level of light or dark to look for on a page. When scanning in black and white,
everything on the page is set to either white pixels or black pixels in the final image. If the text on the page is a
light color, then the text may be gone in the final image as the scanner will change those light colors to white
pixels. The threshold slider lets you set the level of darkness or lightness of the text on the page. Dynamic
threshold attempts to evaluate the image and dynamically adjust the threshold level. These options work best
for documents that contain only text such as business letters, spreadsheets, reports, etc...
•
Threshold—move the slider to the left or right to set the level of lightness or darkness for the scanner to
leverage from.
For example, if you are scanning a document with gray text, such as hand written pencil notes, move the
slider to the right. This tells the scanner that the level to look for is light, and gray pixels are converted to
black pixels instead of white. If the overall tone of the original document is dark, such as a colored
background that may interfere with detecting black, move the slider left. This tells the scanner that the level
to look for is dark, only very dark areas such as text are converted to black pixels.
If you are scanning documents that are in good condition, with black text on a white background, the
default threshold option will properly scan the item. This level only needs to be adjusted if the scanned
image does not have image clarity similar to the original.
•
Sensitivity—move the slider left or right to adjust the sensitivity level for dynamic thresholding. This slider
is only enabled when Dynamic threshold is selected in the list.

Error diffusion, Bayer, and Halftone pattern
Error diffusion, Bayer, and Halftone patterns are the intentional application of noise (dithering) in the image to
help alleviate banding when scanning in binary (black and white) mode. For example, if you scan a color photo in
black and white, the image file will have large blocks of black and white and the image barely recognizable.
Dithering the image creates a black and white image that is recognizable.
Below is an example of a color scan, a black and white scan without dithering, and a black and white scan with
dithering. When the image is scaled down, it may look like a grayscale scan. When the image is at normal size or
enlarged you will be able to clearly see the dithering pattern, as shown in the close-up image.

VISIONEER ROADWARRIOR 3 SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
COLOR DROPOUT
Color dropout tells the scanner and software to remove a specific color from the image. You can choose either
Red, Green, or Blue, or define a custom color, to be dropped out of an image.
To input a custom color using its RGB value, select Custom in this list and then input the values for R, G, and B in
their appropriate boxes, where R, G, and B are numbers from 0 to 255.
Tolerance—use the slider to adjust the precision of the color dropout.
•
More precise—this option removes a range of colors closest to the pure color selected or defined in the
custom fields. For example, pure red has an R/G/B value of 255/0/0. Selecting Red indicates that the scanner
should look for a range of RGB reds close to pure red and remove them from the image.
•
More approximate—this option removes a wider range of colors based on the pure color selected in the
list or defined in the custom fields.
This option is only available when scanning in grayscale or black and white. The example below shows the
original text with a red watermark and the resulting image with the color removed.
PERFORM COLOR CORRECTION
Apply color correction to the image so the displayed colors approximate the original item colors. Select this
option to use the scanner’s default Gamma table which has been calibrated to produce the best quality color
results for your scanner. When this option is not selected, the resulting scans will be dark and the brightness,
contrast, and gamma options will require a greater amount of adjustment to affect the overall lightness of the
image.

ADVANCED PANEL OPTIONS
The options in this panel may also appear in the Main panel, but with additional settings for you to fine-tune the
feature you've selected. Select the Advanced source configuration mode to show this panel.
DESPECKLE
This option removes speckles from the background. Speckles are small spots on an image that the scanner
interpreted as a valid part of the document. For example, an irregularity in the paper, a small wrinkle, or holes
where a staple was removed may show up as speckles in the scanned image. The Despeckle option identifies
these spots and removes them. This option is only available when scanning in black and white.
Radius—this is the size of the area that is evaluated for stray dots.
Number—this is the maximum number of dots within the radius that should be considered a speckle. If this
number of dots are in the circle, the dots will not be considered a speckle and remain in the image. If there are less
than this number of dots in the circle, the dots are considered a speckle and removed from the image.
For example, if the radius is 3 and the number is 5, then the document is evaluated in sections of 3x3 pixels and if
there are more than 5 stray dots within a 3x3 area, they are not considered a speckle.
FILTER
Use the Filter option to increase or decrease the sharpness in the scanned image. Click the drop down menu and
select an option from the list.
•
Blur—softens the appearance of the image by evaluating a pixel and changing its color to an average of the
surrounding pixels. Use the Radius field to set the size of the area for each pixel to be evaluated to adjacent
pixels.
•
Sharpen—sharpens the appearance of the image by evaluating a pixel and changing its color to increase
the contrast to adjacent pixels. Use the Radius field to set the size of the area for each pixel to be evaluated
to adjacent pixels.

VISIONEER ROADWARRIOR 3 SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Unsharp mask—adjusts the contrast of edge detail by evaluating the image and setting a lighter and
darker line on either side of the edge. Use the Sensitivity slider to adjust the tolerance of the unsharp mask.
REDUCE MOIRÉ
Moiré patterns are wavy or rippled lines that may appear in the scanned images of newspapers and magazines,
and sometimes scanned images of photos, line drawings, and color scans of textured paper. Select the Reduce
moiré option to have the driver attempt to find and remove moiré patterns from the image. Please note that
when Moiré reduction is enabled the scanner may scan slower as the image is checked for moiré patterns. This
option is only available when scanning in Color or Gray.
Image with moiré patterns
Image with moiré patterns
removed
Radius—you can set the size of the area to be evaluated in the Moiré radius field. Adjusting the radius will
produce different results for the various types of items that can be scanned. With this feature, you may have to
test scan a few times, adjusting the Moiré radius as needed, until you obtain the best results for the type of paper
in your scan job. Note that the higher the number is in the Moiré radius field, the longer it will take the driver to
evaluate the image.
WHITE LEVEL
With this option you can set what the scanner should interpret as “white” in the final image, even though the
page being scanned may have a shaded or off-white background. You may want to adjust this option to have the
image automatically corrected when you are scanning irregular paper, such as thick or thin paper, that may cause
the white page in the final image to appear shaded with a pale grey. This option is only available when scanning
in Color or Gray.
For the best automatic results you can simply select the type of paper you are scanning from the list. Alternatively,
you can input a number in the Custom value field. The value you set in this field can be from 128 to 255. If you set
the custom value to 128 you are telling the scanner that all pixels that are grey level 128 or higher (lighter) should
be changed to white in the final image. If you set the custom value to 255, you are telling the scanner that only
pure white is white and anything lower than 255 should remain unchanged in the final image.
BLACK LEVEL
With this option you can set what the scanner should interpret as “black” in the final image. If you are scanning
items that have notes written with a pencil, you may want to raise the black level to have the pencil notes appear
black in the image. You can set a value for black from 0 to 127. If you set this value to 127, you are telling the
scanner that all pixels that are grey level 127 or lower (darker) should appear as black in the final image. This
option is only available when scanning in Color or Gray.

CLEANING YOUR SCANNER
Clean the inside of the scanner to remove dust and paper debris from the scanner glass, pickup and feed rollers.
Cleaning the inside of the scanner helps to keep your scanner operating at optimum performance. Dust
accumulation on the rollers will prevent documents from feeding straight through the scanner, dust on the
scanner glass will appear as lines in the scanned image.
You should clean the inside of the scanner at least once a week or as needed depending on how often the
scanner is used. If cleaning the scanner does not resolve any image quality issues, please follow the instructions in
the next section for calibrating the scanner.
You will need the cleaning cloth provided with your scanner.
1.
Place your thumbs on either side of the paper feed slot, underneath the top panel of the scanner.
2.
Hold the scanner sides firmly and pull the scanner top up to release it from the body of the scanner.
Use both hands to open the scanner, the top is held down with locking arms on both sides of the paper feed
slot. If you open only one side, you may warp the scanner top.

CALIBRATING YOUR SCANNER
If your scanned images have black or colored vertical lines and cleaning does not resolve the problem, this may
be a sign that you need to perform a calibration.
The scanner should be calibrated as part of your monthly maintenance of the scanner. If the scanner is used daily
you may need to calibrate the scanner more often.
You will need to have the calibration page ready.
Warning: do not attempt to calibrate the scanner with any other type of document (i.e. white paper or a copy of
the calibration page). The calibration routine will fail and indicate the failed calibration by flashing a red LED on
the scanner. A calibration page was included with your scanner, if you do not have one available, you can order a
replacement from the Parts & Accessories page for your scanner at www.visioneer.com.
To calibrate the scanner:
1.
Right-click on the OneTouch icon and choose Show Hardware from the pop-up menu.

Problem: The scanner won’t scan. What’s wrong?
Check for one of these possible problems:
•
Is a cable loose or not plugged in securely? Inspect all cable connections. Make sure all the cables are
plugged in securely.
•
Did you restart the computer after installing the software? If you didn’t restart the computer, it may not
have loaded all of the software files. Try restarting your computer.
•
Did you select another TWAIN source for acquiring images? If you use multiple TWAIN devices with your
computer, you may have selected another source for images. Start the PaperPort software and make sure
TWAIN: Visioneer RoadWarrior 3 is selected as your scanner.
•
Is the OneTouch icon in the Windows notification area? OneTouch must be installed for the scanner’s
AutoLaunch function to work. You can also try scanning from a TWAIN scanning application, such as
PaperPort.
Problem: Why does my scanner not function after performing a system restore on Windows?
The system restore process may have corrupted some of the driver components. It is recommended that you
reinstall your scanner driver.
Problem: Why won’t my scanner work after the computer has been sitting idle for several hours?
This may occur after Windows goes into power saving mode to “hibernate” the computer into a low power state.
When you move your mouse or type on the keyboard it “wakes” the computer back up and restores full power to
the system. This power fluctuation during the computer’s hibernating period may sometimes cause the scanner
to lose communication to the computer.
Problem: I got the error message: PaperPort cannot allocate enough memory to perform internal critical
operations.
Close any other active applications so that additional memory is available. If you click Continue, PaperPort moves
the file to the PaperPort data directory and renames the file with the prefix “bad.” This allows you to recover the
file later. To recover the file, import it into PaperPort by using the Import command in the File menu.
Problem: The installation will not complete successfully. If installation finishes, the scanner’s OneTouch options
do not seem to work properly.
A likely cause is that some driver programs are already installed on your computer for another scanner. They are
interfering with the installation and OneTouch options, and you need to remove those other drivers and re-install
your Visioneer RoadWarrior 3 scanner. Please see the documentation that you received with the other scanner for
the steps to remove its driver programs. After uninstalling the other scanner’s driver programs, uninstall
OneTouch using the steps on page 179 then install OneTouch following the instructions in the Installation
chapter.
Problem: My computer keeps giving me out of hard drive space error messages.
The minimum requirement of 350MB free hard drive space is for the installation of the software and basic, low
resolution, scanning. High resolution scans result in files that can be over 1 gigabyte in size. Free up some space
on your hard drive for the software to be able to save the scanned images.

Problem: When using “Create single image files” not all of the pages scanned are sent to the destination I chose.
Where are they?
There are a limited number of times that an application can open. When “Create single image files” is selected and
you are scanning to a destination application, each side of the page scanned will open a new instance of that
application. If you want to have an image open in an application immediately, limit your scan batch to less than 5
pages.
Alternatively, you can set your destination to be a folder location on your computer or network using “Transfer to
Storage”. Select any file format and then scan a large batch of papers. At the end of scanning, the driver will
immediately save all pages scanned to that folder location without opening an application.
Problem: I have selected “Skip Blank Originals” but not all of the blank pages have been removed. Why are there
still blank pages in the file?
If you are scanning light weight paper, such as 16lb or 18lb printer paper, the scanner may be picking up faint
images through the paper and the driver will not drop those pages out of the final file. The “Skip Blank Originals”
result will vary based on the DPI range and paper weight. Generally 100 dpi or 150 dpi produces the best results.
Problem: I tried to 'Repair' the OneTouch application by using the 'Change' function through the Add/Remove
Program within the Control Panel and was not able to repair it. How do I repair OneTouch?
1.
Before attempting to repair OneTouch, unplug the USB cable connected to the scanner.
2.
Perform the Change/Repair function again. If you are asked for the Install DVD, insert the disc into the DVDROM player and click OK.
3.
When prompted, plug the USB cable back into the scanner.
4.
When the installation process finishes, click OK on the Complete The Installation window, and then click
Close.
5.
Reboot your computer.
Problem: OneTouch no longer functions after installing Internet Explorer 7 on Windows XP. How do I resolve this
issue?
This is a known issue where OneTouch stops responding when Internet Explorer 7 is installed after the scanner. To
resolve the issue:
1.
Open the Windows Add/Remove Programs feature from the Control Panel.
2.
Find Windows Internet Explorer 7 and uninstall it using the change/remove options. Follow the wizard
through a complete removal of the Internet Explorer 7 software.
3.
Find OneTouch and uninstall it using the change/remove options. Follow the wizard through a complete
removal of the OneTouch program.
4.
Unplug your scanner's USB cable from the computer.
5.
Reboot your computer.
6.
Install Internet Explorer 7.
7.
Install your scanner driver.
Problem: I am getting an error message that OCR fails every time I try to scan using the OCR features from
OneTouch. What is the problem?
Anti-SpyWare software that is set to always run may interfere with the driver functionality. It is recommended that
you temporarily disable or suspend the automatic protection feature during scanning. After scanning is complete
and your file has been saved, turn the auto-protect feature back on. You do not need to close the Anti-SpyWare
software.

VISIONEER ROADWARRIOR 3 SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Problem: The scanned images are of poor quality even after I recalibrated and cleaned the scanner.
Try reinstalling the scanner driver. The driver software may have been corrupted.
STATUS LIGHT TROUBLESHOOTING
The status light indicates the current state of the scanner:
•
Steady blue—indicates the scanner is receiving power. When the scanner driver is installed, it also means
the scanner is ready to scan.
•
Blinking blue—indicates that the scanner is busy (e.g. when scanning or calibrating).
•
Blinking red—indicates that there is a hardware error.
ERROR CODES
If your scanner experiences a hardware error, the status light will blink red. It will flash in a numerical sequence,
pause, then repeat the same number of flashes. The number of times the light blinks between pauses indicates
the error code number. The following table describes the error codes.

Paper jam
Open the scanner and remove the jammed document.
To reduce the number of paper jams, make sure the
paper return is closed when scanning thick documents
and plastic cards. Also make sure the paper guide is
properly adjusted to the width of the item you are
scanning. If the paper guide is too narrow for the paper
being scanned, it will cause the paper to warp and get
stuck in the paper path.
6
Cover open
Make sure the scanner is fully closed after performing
maintenance on the scanner or removing a jammed
page. If needed, open and close the scanner again. If the
problem persists, try power cycling the scanner through
un-plug and re-plug of the USB cable.
8
Calibration error
This may occur if the USB cable was unplugged during
calibration, the calibration was canceled, or the
calibration page was not used.
First, power cycle the scanner through un-plug and replug of the USB cable, and then restart the calibration
routine. Please refer to Calibrating Your Scanner on
page 172 for instructions.
Make sure you have the scanner’s calibration page ready
when you start the calibration utility.
