Do you need to transform the text of a book into a digital version for some reason? If so, you may be wondering what the fastest way is to scan a book.
There are really two answers we could give here.
The first would be to use a scanner. Obviously, not every option is going to be the fastest way to scan a book. Your budget will come into play a lot here, too.

eRecordsUSA, yearbook scanning service is great. Many of my classmates either had not purchased their Senior yearbook or had lost it. I was able to reproduce it on CD for my 40 year High School reunion. All that received a copy were very thrilled and so grateful. I do recommend eRecordsUsa and their yearbook scanning service.
