Since I didn't see the author answer, I think is is the windows imaging
program. Also called wang imaging and kodak imaging in various versions.

Use menu page->convert->compresssion and select CCITT Group 2(2d) Fax.
I think this choice moves around some in the menu structure for the various
options. You can also make that the default for scans under another menu.
Didn't work properly with my sheet feeder though. Can do simple cleanup
on the scans.

Very fast for displaying and paging through the tiff files and doesn't
have the display artifacts that Adobe PDF viewer sometimes has. (Select
menu option view->scale to grey for best display quality).
