The search engine knows if your scanner is supported and if yes, by which backend. If it's not supported, it may at least point to documentation or test programs. The search engine contains information from the latest stable SANE release, the development ("git") version of SANE and from external backends. The database is updated once per day.
The lists of devices contain information not only about scanners and other devices but also about APIs (e.g. Video for Linux) and meta backends (e.g. dll). If you want to check if your scanner is supported, look at the lists that are ordered by manufacturer. If you are interested in the devices a backends supports, have a look at the lists ordered by backend.
These lists provide information about the devices that are supported by the latest stable release of SANE. If your device isn't mention in these lists or tagged as "unsupported", also have a look at the lists for the development version and the external backends below.
These lists provide information about the devices that are supported by the unstable development version of SANE. The lists are updated automatically from git.
This list provides information about the devices that are supported by external backends, i.e. backends that are not yet included in the SANE package. They also contain the reason why these backends are not yet included. Go to the backend's homepage for download instructions and more information.
If you have an older release of SANE and want to check if your scanner is supported by that version, these lists are for you.
