What software are people using for scanning receipts, particularly on flatbed scanners? I use the very old software that came with my brother multifunction device, Control Centre 4. It's ok. I'd like something that does scanning and OCR. I don't really care if it straightens the scans.

 

 

     

  1. You can download an updated version of Control Centre 4 from the Brother website. I think the best is to use the software update tool that came with your printer driver.
  2. Control Centre 4 does have OCR functionality as well.

Thanks. I'm already using the latest version apparently, 4.6.46.1, looks the same as it did years ago. It works fine, just a bit clunky.

I just use my iPhone to take the photo.  Both Google Photos and the Photos app will then find them all simply by searching for "receipt".

Bung: I just had a NW self scanner not respond to the barcode on my phone screen and was told to press the camera icon beside the scanner. It worked then. I don't know what changed, maybe the mode of the scanner.

 

Thanks for this tip, it worked perfectly for me! So much better than having to type it in.
