Q: What are scan codes? A: Scan codes are unique codes generated by keyboards to represent each key pressed or released. They are often used in low-level programming and hardware interaction.

Q: How accurate is the conversion process? A: The conversion process is highly accurate, as it relies on a predefined map of scan codes to ASCII characters. However, if a scan code is not recognized or invalid, it will be skipped during conversion.

Q: Can I convert multiple scan codes at once? A: Yes, you can input multiple scan codes separated by commas into the textarea, and the tool will convert them all at once.

Q: Is there a limit to the number of scan codes I can convert? A: There is no strict limit to the number of scan codes you can convert, but large inputs may affect performance.
