This is a new introduction that I propose:
- The problem with this that you also use a scanner for irises, or fingerprints; in that context simply saying scanner may be confusing...--Eptalon (talk) 21:52, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
- That is a good point. How should we rephase the sentence so it covers this? Any suggestions? --DJDunsie (talk) 16:54, 14 April 2011 (UTC) Having said this, the article is Image scanner, not just scanner. The en.wiki article does not talk about these 'special' scanners. --DJDunsie (talk) 18:47, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, you're right.I know there are lots of types of scanners. That was not my point. We should perhaps have an article for entitled just Scanner. Here we should write about all the kinds and give a general definition, etcetera.
- I don't know what to do then. DJDunsie (talk) 13:32, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
- I have changed the article so it reflects your comments, which I agree with. One other thing is that scanner redirects to here. On en, it is a disambiguation page, which I think is more appropriate because it caters for all the different types which you mention. Should we create the page here too?
