To scan a document and end up with something you can edit in MS Word (for example) you need OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. OCR software is usually (but not always) bundled with the driver software on the cd accompanying the scanner.

It does not do a perfect job, it usually gets whole sentences wrong and spells words incorrectly, for example. Check your driver cd for a folder or install option with OCR in the title.

Hope this helps.

What is Apostille definition and How can you apostille a document?


This is a document certification scheme which applies in countries which are signatories to the Hague Convention on Private International Law, eg not in Brazil.

It notarizes or certifies a government issued document as a genuine one for use in another signatory country eg a US birth certificate for use in say, Spain.

Such a certificate is called an apostille. It is issued by any approved office in the issuing country. In the US this is generally any approved agent of the US Dept of State:

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
