This requires setting up a monitor and a device in my studio. I already have a scanner. I've decided to take your advice, and have located a very inexpensive, used 20" vga monitor. I already have an adapter that goes from my iPhone to vga, so I can display my phone's screen on the monitor. I can scan a book page, email it to myself, and open the attachment on my phone, et voila! The monitor ($30) should arrive tomorrow. I'll give it a try. Thanks.
