will this scanner work with OS 10.5.8

I have a UMax Astra 1220U Scanner which I used to use when I used Mac OS 9. If it WILL work I have no software which is OS 10.5.8 compatible. I'd like a scanner, a NEW ONE if necessary but if new software is all that's necessary I'd like to purchase that.

    I have the Canoscan N1220U - perhaps the UK version of your scanner (?). I have tried in vain for years to get decent software for it ever since I stopped using MAC OS9. Canon no longer support it, it works through photoshop but I found a private developers application - VueScan (www.hamrick.com) - you can download trial software for free and it does the job very well. (Its not expensive if you want to buy it.)
