Dragging School Papers into the 21st Century

October 7, 2011 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

In a recent article on TidBITS Tonya Engst talks about how she manages school papers digitally:

The ScanSnap is addictive, and I’ve hardly begun to learn how to use it. Here’s how cool it is: My son comes home from the first day of school with a fistful of forms and handouts. I open the scanner, stick them in, choose an option from the ScanSnap icon in the Dock, and push the big blue button on the scanner. Within moments (or minutes if I chose to run OCR) the entire pile is onscreen, even the double-sided forms and the pages that emerge from the backpack slightly crumpled.

While Tonya herself is not using DEVONthink Pro Office, she mentions it among the available options if you want to go paperless and points to Joe Kissell’s really cool Take Control of Getting Started with DEVONthink 2 and Take Control of Your Paperless Office ebooks, both also available in our own online shop.
