Undoubtedly faster than setting up a transparency cover and template on

I bought a flatbed with a transparency adapter for seventy something,
about the same price as those gadgets, but of course far more flexible.
I would expect the quality is a bit better, but the convenience of the
gadget is fine. It takes some physical time to set the transparency
adapter up, and then more time to get into the driver and set it from
print scanning to transparency scanning.
