Firstly, from the information I have, I cannot 100% confirm that iscan supports 
the buttons on the GT-2500. But I have no reason to doubt Wolfram Heider's 
report. If it doesn't work though, that's a bug and you should let us know.

Please be aware, however, that the button support is quite limited and may not 
be exactly what you are expecting.

The way it works is that you need to start iscan first and select the "enable 
Start button" option. Then when you click on iscan's "Scan" button iscan will 
wait for you to push the scanner's start button before actually starting the 
scan. This will let you scan multiple sheets with the flatbed without the need 
to run back and forth between the computer and the scanner. Of course, simply 
using the ADF will accomplish the same thing.

I am not sure what kind of buttons are on the GT-2500, but iscan only supports 
one kind of button, the "start scan" button.

Happy scanning,
