Hi -
Is there a way or an app that scan paper and autotag based on the text inside? for example: if I scan Comcast bill, It will autotag the scan with "comcast, bill ...." ?

i doubt it. that would take a pretty good ai to figure it out, too. organization takes some work, i'm afraid. my question, though, is why tag it at all?

comcast is in the pdf. it is searchable. if you give it a title like 120131 bill comcast, then you can do a search later for "intitle:comcast" and everything will appear in order by date. if you'd like, at that time you cn drag the notes into a tag to tag them, but i think that is superfluous.

tags are powerful, but with good naming, you can go a long way. and, of course, the pdf is searchable if you have trouble tracking things down for any reason.

The software with ScanSnap S1500 claims to be able to assign keywords based on text highlighted on a page. Haven't done much experimenting - but it works best for black-white docs with no other confusing colours.

However, those keywords still stay in ScanSnap Organizer.
It would be great if someone knew how to extract the keywords from the files. Then it would be possible to write scripts that imported the files in EN and assigned tags at the same time.

I don't think I would use the "highlight" feature that much myself. But I would love to be able to control and direct my information flow with keywords already in ScanSnap Organizer.
