Scansnap Mac Software Download
Regarding the malfunction of the installation to OS X v10.8 (Mountain Lion), please refer to "I cannot install the software downloaded from the web site onto OS X v10.8 (Mountain Lion)". (S300M / S510M)
ScanSnap Manager Dock pop-up menu in Mojave (left) and Catalina (right)On the download page, Fujitsu added a comment about a few features in the 6.x (32-bit) versions that are not yet in the V7 (64-bit) version:
But another factor may have weighed more heavily in the decision. Lots of people have been complaining about ScanSnap Home, the 64-bit software that replaced ScanSnap Manager. Complaints center around its lack of features in comparison to the older ScanSnap Manager. Fujitsu has been saying that it would gradually update ScanSnap Home with the features that people missed from ScanSnap Manager. Perhaps that effort was later determined to be greater than just porting ScanSnap Manager to 64-bit.
Thank you for contacting Fujitsu. The newly release ScanSnap Manager software was released for those customer who upgraded to the new iX1500 as well as customers who did not want to use ScanSnap Home but rather wanted use ScanSnap Manager again for scanning. We do not guarantee previous model scanners will work with the newly release ScanSnap Manager as well as there is no support for scanners not supported officially under OS Catalina.
Thanks so much for this article! I also got my S510M working by downloading the S1500M version that @typ993 mentioned (funny, I used the same logic). Until now I had a Parallels instance of Mojave running just to keep the Scansnap working.
Anyway, the new v7 software works great with MacOS Mojave & ScanSnap S510M. One small difference that I notice is that OCR is now included an an option while scanning. That is great & seems to work fine. But doing the OCR while scanning does slow you down considerably.
According to the Japanese download page, that is a feature that (used to, but not in V7.0) convert an (existing) already-scanned PDF file into a Searchable PDF file. The page emphasizes that the Convert to Searchable PDF (at the scanning time) feature is still present in V7.0.
Just downloaded the new ScanSnap Manager V7 for our S1500M scanner on our 2020 Macbook Pro with Catalina OS and the scanner works just fine quite similar to our other Macs running El Capitain, and High Sierra. Thank you Tidbits for letting this community know about V7!!!
I have not tried Home but I have tried Manager alongside other third party products. And it seems that only one software can bind to the scanner at a time at runtime. When you launch the second app, it complains that the scanner is in use or some such.
Hi I am using a very old fi - 5110EOXM model and it always worked fine over the years total pages scanned 24,882 That shows how well it has done. I had switched to Exactscap pro which as a few niggles but does work. I installed V7 of the Scansnap software and it all appears functional and has remembered my settings but when I scan although all appears good it does not save a scan 0 pages are shown as being scanned even tough the software goes through its preview etc? Any help appreciated. Simon
This August I was tasked with scanning many estate-related documents and pictures at a location 95 miles from my office. I bought an iX1500 and downloaded ScanSnap Manager to my Office Catalina system with good results. I then installed ScanSnap Manager on a 2017 MacBook Pro (my Big Sur Beta test machine). Scanning was done at a remote site where my iPhone hotspot provided wireless connectivity. I scanned a few hundred pictures and dozens of documents with no problems. I can recommend this solution.

Please read list of missing feature on ScanSnap mfg pages.For me missing Scan to Email, and many more that might be more important to others. The support for older scanners is missing too.Unless ScanSnap updates the Manager and all other software it will be the end of Fujitsu. Their prices are unreasonable too.
Fujitsu appears to be in full development/restoration mode with ScanSnap Manager. The version I downloaded was labeled 7.1 L25, and for the most part looks like a modern version of the manager that was in the box when I purchased my scanner in 2011.
Switched to Big Sur recently and apart from my Mail app crashing a few weeks in it has been good. However now noticed that scans done with the scansnap now fail to utilise the built in OCR feature hanging for ages then issuing a fail notice. The resultant PDF is fine and you can do OCR in Acrobat but still annoying. I presume is some embedded Abby Finereader functionality that is failing . Maybe an update is needed. cheers Simon
I love that my SnapScan S1500M still works and can do OCR. I do have a question for people who are using the new software, as I may be missing something. When I scan for OCR now, it scans, then brings up a dialogue box where I have to pick what to do with the scan. I only have one option, their own OCR software, but I always have to click to pass it through.
A scanner that supports WIA or TWAIN may work with Paperless. Make sure the latest update to scanner drivers are installed on your PC. If you need a scanner, we strongly recommend using actively developed (not discontinued) Fujitsu ScanSnap models. We have found that reliability and quality of results are typically better with ScanSnap scanners than with any other kind of scanner. As with any of our products, if you are unsure whether Paperless will meet your expectations, please feel free download a trial copy to test Paperless in your own environment.
Find the appropriate driver to solve your issues problem regarding wifi setup or error while printing. This combo package installer obtains and installs the printer driver, scanner and software updater.
The ScanSnap SV600 Windows drivers and software come on a disk in the box, along with a copy of ABBY FineReader for ScanSnap. Mac users will need to download the software from the product website. Unfortunately, to download the Abby Fine Reader software, you will need your scanner's product and serial numbers, which are located in small type on the rear of the scanner base.
The ScanSnap does not use standard TWAIN drivers, so you will need to use the Fujitsu drivers and software to create scanned images. Using the accompanying Abby Fine Reader is the easiest way to turn scans into text, though there is a way to port your scans to OpenBook, K1000 or other OCR packages (see below).
The Mac software installation was completely accessible, but Windows installation presented issues. The opening splash screen was completely inaccessible; Window-Eyes couldn't read it at all. I did find a workaround: from my computer drive list I used the context menu "Open" option to explore the DVD drive. I was then able to navigate to the setup files and install each of the three scanning components: ScanSnap Manager, ABBY FineReader for ScanSnap, and CardMinder, a utility for organizing business cards.
A better solution is to download the PC software from the site, which will give you the latest versions of the software (I needed to download and install the new versions anyway because of a bug that was fixed after the installation disks were produced). To download the Windows version of FineReader for ScanSnap, you will also need the product and serial numbers located on the scanner's base.
At this point both the PC and Mac versions provide a software "scan" button you can press to begin a new scan. Unfortunately, you must begin each new session from the Notifications Area or the Dock; there isn't a hotkey or menu option within the software itself to start a new scan. I found this rather inconvenient when beginning a second scan of a different book or piece of mail. Usually, I much preferred to simply tap the ScanSnap's physical "Scan" button and avoid the sotware altogether.
The ScanSnap Manager software performs certain image manipulations to make the scans easier to turn into digital books and to improve OCR. First, since the book is not pressed against scanner glass, most people will tend to hold the pages down and out to the sides with their fingers. The ScanSnap software does its best to remove finger images from the scan before saving it. Second, and of more interest to screen access users, the software tries to "flatten" the pages, compensating for the down curved inner edges that can lead to less-than-stellar text recognition.
The Mac software needed a bit more tweaking. The buttons on this Quick Menu lacked accessible labels, so you have to label them using the VoiceOver Control + Option + / (Slash) command. I spent some time pressing unlabeled buttons to try figure out which option each called up so I could label the buttons properly, but then I discovered that in the Mac Settings menu of the manager there is a table listing all of the applications in the Quick Menu in the order they appear, and with the option to change their order.
