That is true yet when scanning as line art (bitmap only not grayscale),
nuances can be lost unless scanning at a sufficiently hi enough
resolution; 600dpi+ for printed matter that does not look so bitmapped.
Scanning in grayscale and then adjusting the threshold/contrast setting
in Photoshop also allows one to preserve, or remove certain areas in the
writing. If you do not have access to a image manipulation program like
Photoshop, then try changing the parameters of the scanner to get the
best possible scan.
