The step by step guide walks you through the assembly of the camera mount and a metal frame that will flatten out the pages of the book. The press allows you to adjust the frame to scan books or magazines of nearly any size.
It’s super easy to use too. Turn the page, take a photo, repeat. The page images can then be inserted into a MS Word file and converted to a PDF. Using some OCR software like Abbyy Transformer, books can be turned into word searchable digitized eBooks.
