    With a scanner connected to your computer.
    Most printers these days will also scan, if you have a printer check the manual.

    If you don't have a printer/scanner then some libraries are still open for 'digital services' for people who do not have access at home and should be able to scan things for a charge. Check with your local library, or on your council website, or there is a list here: https://www.publiclibrariesnews.com/...pen-in-england
    Some Post Offies also have Printers/scanners.
    In either of those cases you will need a USB stick to put the scanned file(s) onto to transfer them to your computer, the library/PO will probably be able to sell you one.

    PS. For a Disabled Railcard application scanned files should be in PDF format. - But it doesn't have to be a scan, a digital photo of the documents is acceptable in JPEG format (as long as it's readable).

    If you are using the mobile application site from a smartphone/tablet then only a JPEG photo is allowed.
    How do I submit evidence of eligibility if I am applying online?

    A: If you are applying for a Disabled Persons Railcard online then you will need to submit your evidence of eligibility

    Files need to be provided in JPEG or PDF format with a maximum individual file size of 4MB. If you are using the mobile site, files can only be provided in JPEG format.
    PS. You can buy a brand new Printer/Scanner/Copier for under £40, it's always handy to have one.
    Here's just a couple at Argos, you could look around the web to see if someone else has one on offer cheaper:

    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    I have found free phone scanner apps to work well.

    Interesting find, I may download it later and have a play to see how it works and how good it is.
