Scan a receipt or a document up to 8-1/2 inches wide and NEAT Receipts saves an image of the item and extracts data to the software such as date, amount and sales tax.
The scanner is capable of getting complete scans of unclear or crumpled receipts. The NEAT Receipts Adjust Image feature, available after scanning an image, works well to darken text on receipts if needed.
Calibrating the scanner is a quick procedure where a sheet of paper with black markings is scanned. The NEAT Receipts software explains step-by-step how to calibrate the scanner, and it told me to insert the calibration sheet face-up with the black markings on the sheet showing. After running the calibration sheet through the scanner five times, the scanner did not calibrate so, I ran the calibration sheet face-down in the scanner. I do not know if there was an error in the directions or if I just lucked out on that last calibration scan, but I have not had to recalibrate since and have experienced consistently good scans.
The NEAT Receipts scanner auto-sizes, auto-crops and auto-rotates all scanned documents and receipts.
