What Customers Say

Just wanted to say how much I love the new version of docuscan plus. You guys are doing a great job. I love all of the new features, and bookshare is my favorite. It is so awesome, you guys added that feature. I already added more books to down load. Keep up the good work. Mike A.

“I love how I can now scan a chapter from a book in my dorm and later read that chapter on my iPhone on the bus. That’s just crazy! The good kind of crazy.”–Kristy Callahan
