You will likely also be able to initiate the scanning process using software on your laptop or computer.

When the scanning is complete, you can move on to scanning the next page by repeating the process above.
  3. Save the PDF. Some scanners will automatically compile these scanned pages into one document, which you can download as a PDF by following the on-screen instructions on your laptop or computer.
