Anyone who wants to transfer large quantities of files, letters and invoices from paper form to a more contemporary digital archive needs a feeder scanner that can automatically digitize several individual sheets. A flatbed scanner would be much too cumbersome for that, especially with documents that are printed on both sides.
Document scans also differ fundamentally from photo scans in terms of quality and post-processing. This creates indirect difficulties for Linux users: While many flatbed scanners can also be easily integrated under Linux, this does not apply to feeder scanners – especially not to many current models.
