ExactScan Pro offers high-speed document scanning for Mac.
ExactScan Pro is a popular, easy-to-use OS X scanning software that utilizes built-in drivers for over 200 document scanners, including devices from Avision, Kodak, Oki, Visioneer, and Xerox.
ExactScan's built-in scanner drivers cover the whole range, from Visioneer's portable RoadWarrior to dependable workgroup scanners from Xerox, Visioneer, Kodak, and Avision. ExactScan allows for easy scanning of business cards, bills, and receipts, and ExactScan Pro's built-in OCR can directly save them as searchable PDFs.

ExactScan Pro's barcode recognition brings even more professional AutoID features to the Mac. During the scan process it can automatically recognize common barcodes and embed their content into the document, or use it for the filing destination.
All versions of ExactScan include advanced image-processing algorithms. For example, the intelligent black-and-white thresholding and blank-page detection can help to decrease storage space required for the archive, while the auto-crop and de-skew can recognize the page and skew for a perfect image representation of the original page.
ExactScan Pro includes various other facilities to help organize the office workflow: it can scan directly to any attached printer, and comes with smart profile presets, such as: Scan 2 PDF, Scan 2 Print (Copy), Scan 2 Email - the user can start right away.
Thanks to the TWAIN compatibility, ExactScan supports even more scanners, thereby enabling more users to take advantage of the advanced ExactScan features on top of the basic vendor drivers.
The support of AppleScript allows professionals to create dedicated solutions for specific, even difficult workflows, and to scan directly into a database.
ExactScan comes with support for many languages (English, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Chinese (simplified) and Chinese (traditional).) and is compatible with OS X 10.8

ExactScan Pro: Additional Features
Optical Character Recognition (Searchable PDF)
Create searchable documents on-the-fly with the click of a button.
The OCR engine supports the following languages:
Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Rumanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Norwegian.
The content de-skew allows to correct page skew based on the page's content. Further improving visual appearance, storage size as well as OCR results.
The auto-rotation feature allows ExactScan Pro to determine the orientation of each scanned sheet automatically, therefore avoiding the need to manually pre-sort a stack before the scan. Because the auto-rotation works independantly of the OCR, the feature also helps to improve OCR results.
The barcode engine embeds the barcode parameters into the PDF document - through this the barcode parameters can be found e.g. with Spotlight and it even recognizes difficult images with colored background, overlapping and distortion.
Everything in the Pro version is automatic. Color and source detection avoids the need to manually switch between ADF, Flatbed, color, or black & white scans, as the optimal storage format for each page is automatically chosen.
The Imprinter allows ExactScan Pro to print flexible text into the scan. For example the scanned date, or watermarks such as "APPROVED", "VOID", "PRELIMINARY", "CONFIDENTIAL" or anything else.
Process existing files, whether PDF or bitmaps, as if they came from a scanner.
