Locate videos with instructions to work on a scanner on the scanner's manufacturer website, on video portals such as YouTube, and on instructional DVDs or CDs provided by the manufacturer in the scanner packaging. Educational institutions that offer information technology or graphic design courses may also host scanner video tutorials.
Instructional videos on scanners display techniques to operate the unit, scan in documents or images and transfer the files to a computer. Many scanners feature ports for users to insert a USB drive or SD card to load scans. Some scanners also allow users to choose the file format for the scan such as PDF file, JPEG file, or conversion to a word-processing or spreadsheet program or application.
