[7008de1]3
[616ce29]4<para><acronym>SANE</acronym> is short for Scanner Access Now Easy.
5Scanner access, however, is far from easy, since every vendor has their own
[ec3c746]6protocols. The only known protocol that should bring some unity into this
[781a3e8]7chaos is the TWAIN interface, but this is too imprecise to
[ec3c746]8allow a stable scanning framework. Therefore, <acronym>SANE</acronym> comes
9with its own protocol, so the vendor drivers can't be used.</para>
10
[5e18c49c]11<para><acronym>SANE</acronym> is split into back ends and front ends. The
12back ends are drivers for the supported scanners. The front ends are user
[ec3c746]13interfaces to access the backends.</para>
