That would be scanned.

We start with scanning text, with verse
Analyzing words and then
Somewhere sometime
A thing that was text based
Becomes image based
And before long we have
A piece of technology
(Created in my lifetime)
that places scanning firmly
in the image camp)

And yet
Despite its transition from word to image
There is some essential thing in the word
that remains.
