I am developping a Web application with ASp>net and C#, and I have the following requirement:
On the client(user) of the Web application,there is a scanner which
is connected to the client machine and when the user puts a document (such as a paper containing text and images) on the surface of the scanner, he can click on a button on a form of the Web application and this click must trigger the scanning process and the file resulting of the scanning must be placed in a folder of the client machine (let's say this folder is D:\Images).
Please , how can I solve this problem using Javascript??
Thanks you in advance for your answers.

You can't do such kind of function sing Javascript! you should use ASP.Net to solve it.

Kindly regard Rajas findings. :)

Based on your question title(you are asking in javascript/client-side), try this(found in CP)
.NET Web Twain[^] (But it won't work in other browsers except IE because it's using activeX)

BTW probably you need a 3rd party tool for a good one.
Dynamic Web TWAIN - web scanning solution[^]

Great find Raja! 5+
I looked at the second link and found they offer ActiveX for IE and plugins for FF, Opera, Chrome and Safari. I'm not quite sure if I'll ever need this, but I bookmarked your answer anyhow.
Proposed as answer!
