Your scanner will not work directly with the backend, because the
niash backend currently does not recognise the scanner as something
that it supports (usb ids are not supported).
But I think there is a very good chance that it can be made to work
with relatively little work. A requirement is that the niash chip
inside your scanner is either a niash00012, 13, 14 or 19.
Unfortunately I won't have time this week to make the change.
