@Antedeluvian: Surely is must be easier to create some software to read paper tape on the scanner.

If the program were only a couple of feet long ... maybe ... but what if it's 100s of feet long?

@Antedeluvian: I came across a post that describes how to read vinyl records using a scanner.

This is AMAZING!!!

I came across a post that describes how to read vinyl records using a scanner. Surely is must be easier to create some software to read paper tape on the scanner (or something else). I did a Google search and found how to read a punch card  with a camera. There is an Arduino Punch Card Reader

Any volunteers?
