Thank you for that and thank you to all those who have given their help.
The problem is that very often, when I have drawn up a short list of
scanners to buy, they are not mentioned on the list of tested scanners.
That is why I asked this question on this list. Not because I am too
lazy or incompetent or don't know my way around, it is because the
answer to my question is not there.
