Press to rescan or to move to the next step!
⚠️ You can quit scanning at any point, but you'll lose all progress from previous scans.
- Place the document on a dark/contrasting background. For example, placing a white document on a white background will result in an error while attempting to scan.
- Step back and ensure you're lining up the edges of the document with the blue border. Hold the device steady at a straight angle.
- If your document has many content blocks/borders, try taking a step back so the scanner can focus on the entire document as opposed to smaller pieces of the document within it.
You may see error messages as you attempt to scan, prompting you to rescan your document.
Error 1: Please hold the device over a document to start scanning
The scanner is not able to capture the document. Try stepping back and capturing the entire document.
Error 2: This is a bad camera angle. Hold the device straight over the document.
Error 3: The document is too small. Try moving closer.
Error 4: It is too dark. Try turning on a light.
