Glossary of Terms

Glossary is usually defined as an alphabetical list of technical terms in some specialized field of knowledge. This knowledge base glossary provides a collection of knowledge base documents that define many technical terms. These terms are arranged alphabetically, but you can quickly jump to a specific term by selecting its first letter from the index of the knowledge base glossary below.

Searchable PDF (sPDF)
This file format is an image of the original document with a hidden, searchable text layer. Unlike a normal PDF file where the file can be edited in Acrobat, a searchable PDF file can only have the text searched from within Acrobat or other searching software. The OneTouch driver option calls this option sPDF, however, the resulting file type will simply be .pdf. See OCR and Normal PDF.
Separator Page
Separator pages allow you to create multiple PDFs of varying page length from a batch of documents. They are easy to use, simply insert a separator page between each document. Every time the scanning software recognizes a new separator page it will then create a new PDF file. Separator pages will either have some type of text or barcode image on them. This tells the scanning software where one document ends and another begins. These are called generic separator pages. However, you can have add naming options on a separator page, so that each PDF is named using a rule or document title.
SharePoint Destination (Microsoft SharePoint)
OneTouch has a destination application link specifically for sending scanned items to a Microsoft SharePoint server if there is a SharePoint server available. When the destination selected is SharePoint all scanning configurations will have a SharePoint option where the site URL, folder location, and user credentials can be set. This allows user to scan directly to a SharePoint site. See Application Link Configurations Destinations and OneTouch.
When a document has printing or pictures on only one side of the page this means that it is a simplex or single-sided document. A simplex scanner will scan only one side of the document at a time. If the original document has printing or pictures on both sides of the page then the first side of the document should be scanned then the document stack must be flipped over and the second side of the document scanned.
Social Media
A term used to describe a variety of Web-based platforms, applications and technologies that enable people to socially interact with one another online. Some examples of social media sites and applications include Facebook, YouTube,, Twitter, Digg, blogs and other sites that have content based on user participation and user-generated content (UGC).
Media streaming is a technique for transferring data so that it can be processed as a steady and continuous stream. Many users do not have a fast enough internet connection to download large multimedia files quickly. With streaming, the client browser or plug-in can start displaying the data or playing the media file before the entire file has been transmitted.
