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.

Text Searchable PDF
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.

A single-page TIFF is a single image of one page of a document. A multi-page TIFF is a large single file consisting of multiple document pages. Document imaging systems that store documents as single-page TIFFs offer significant network performance benefits over multi-page TIFF systems.
An industry standard for image capturing software that controls importing digital images from a scanner or digital camera into the computer. Most applications that will communicate with a scanner or digital camera will access the TWAIN interface. See Interface.
