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
6protocols. The only known protocol that should bring some unity into this
7chaos is the TWAIN interface, but this is too imprecise to
8allow a stable scanning framework. Therefore, <acronym>SANE</acronym> comes
9with its own protocol, so the vendor drivers can't be used.</para>
10
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
13interfaces to access the backends.</para>
