What will I see?
Select Scan, then answer the copyright notice/question. Touch Accept and the scan session will begin automatically.
A few seconds after accepting the copyright statement, the first scanned image will be displayed on the screen. If the KIC system detects that the document being scanned is a book, the system automatically splits the left from the right pages into two different images.
A thumbnail image of each scanned page is displayed at the top of the interactive touch screen. You can preview any scanned image by simply clicking on a specific thumbnail and viewing on the monitor.
To continue scanning additional pages, touch Scan or use the foot pedal on the floor.
Modify images under the Scan "Change Settings" option (resolution, color, brightness, contrast) and/or Modify Image(s) (rotate, crop, color, brightness).
Save your images by inserting a USB Flash Drive and press the Save/Send tab and select Save to USB Drive, or touch the Send via E-mail option and use the keyboard.
You can also save directly to your WiFi-enabled phone, tablet or laptop via the KIC SmartDock:
After saving images, choose to continue scanning or end your session.
