All three scanners are able to scan name cards as well as A4 size pages.

You can fold an A3 size poster into two so that the scanner can scan both sides and then stitch both halves together with the included software.

The scanning software can do OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to scan to editable text files (with no formatting); or scan to PDFs as images (layout preserved).

Alternatively you can also scan your documents into searchable PDFs (OCRed text layer superimposed on scanned image).

As these scanners are sheet-fed, they can only scan loose-leaf pages. For bound books, you’ll need to use a flat-bed scanner instead.
