    The Scan button is on the top of the mouse behind the scroll wheel, we did this to stop accidental clicking

    You can save your scan as a jpeg and use a different OCR thats dedicated to recognizing handwriting

  • How does the search image work?

    Scan the image you want to search, and click on the apps button, there you will see, Google search with image

  • Does it scan high-res photos?

    We suggest using a flatbed or bar scanner with a min resolution of 1200 dpi.

  • So what about spreadsheets?

    No problem, you can scan a spread sheet or table and be able to place it directly into excel, with the information placed into the cells for you

  • Why did the excel export not work?

    You have to make sure that from your scan, only the table is selected in order to get the best result

  • Can I scan A4 or A3 pages?

    Sure, as long as your computer has enough memory. However  we suggest using a flatbed or bar scanner instead. Zcan+ was designed for you to take out specific information from within a page, so that you wouldn't have to crop or edit anything

  • Why did the text not come out correctly?

    Make sure the right language is selected in the text recognitions. You can check this in Settings (Preferences on Mac), and choose which language under the "Text Recognition" menu

  • What do I need to use it?

    You need a computer running Windows® 7/8/10 or Mac OS® X 10.9-10.12, at least 1.2 Ghz  Intel® Core™ Duo CPU speed, 128mb of graphics memory, 2GB of ram and 1 GB of free space

  • Do I need an Internet connection?

    You only need an Internet connection if you want to search, share or translate a scan. Everything else works without Internet

  • Does Zcan+ come with OCR (optical Character Recognition)?

    It does and it will start automatically once you've highlighted the area of the scan you want to use

  • Do i need to install the software?

    You can use Zcan+ as a mouse without installing anything. But in-order to start scanning you need to install the software that is provided on the DVD inside the box, which works on Windows and Mac

  • What comes in the box?

    You get your mouse, zcan pad, DVD with the software on it, and instruction manual
