When you scan a document, set the fixed height of the camera based on the
size of the scan document in order to achieve the best scan or video effects.

need to connect the USB cable to the computer's USB interface.
If it is used as a desk lamp, you need to open KoPaCam software and click
auxiliary lighting.
3.3 Security Exit
For users not familiar with KoPa scanner, the device is like a regular desk
lamp. When they want to turn it off, they probably switch off the electrical
power directly. However, that action does great harm to KoPa Scanner.
Because when KoPa Scanner A99 is in use, direct power off would seriously
affect its life. The correct method is to exit the work program and then cut off
the power.

Chapter4 Tips
4.1 How to improve the character
recognition rate?
OCR function recognition rate depends on the contrast and clarity of
character and background. When the two conditions are reached, the general
character recognition rate can reach 95% or more.
(1) Crop character-only part of the picture.
(2) Try to ensure that the character does not tilt (If character tilts, please
adjust the picture to horizontal angle).
4. 2 How to Edit Text File?
Scan the text file for character recognition and then edit the document
directly.
4. 3 Scanned Documents with Spots?
Whether KoPa Scanner lens is clean or not will directly affect the clarity of
the content on the computer screen when you are previewing. Various circles
or spots on the screen are mostly because of the dust on the lens. Use
professional lens paper or other professional cleaners to clean the dust on
KoPa ScannerA99 lens.
