Home Support Scanners GT Series Epson WorkForce Pro GT-S85

When I scan a document using Epson Scan in Windows, it takes a long time to save it as PDF file. What should I do?

    If you have ABBYY FineReader installed, you can turn off Create searchable PDF in EPSON Scan to decrease the time it takes to save a PDF File. (“Create searchable PDF” is an option that allows you to save a PDF file with searchable text.) Follow these steps to disable this setting:
    1. Start EPSON Scan.
    2. Click the  file folder icon next to the Scan button. A File Save Settings window appears.
    3. Select PDF for the Type setting under Image Format.
    4. Click the Options button.
    5. Click the Text tab.
    6. Deselect Create searchable PDF.
