Hi there
Shouldn't be much of a problem,
You need OCR software. That stands for Optical Character Recognition. It is usually bundled with Scanners and has been around for twenty years.

It works with your scanner software as an extra step in the scanning process.

There are quite a few types, but this is about as far as I can go with the info provided.

If you reposted a new question with Make/ Models of computer, scanner, O/S, if you still have the install disks for the scanner and if you found the OCR s/w that came with the scanner, it would help us help you that much more

I cannot get it to scan a document and allow me to edit information on the document.


To edit information on a scanned document you must use a OCR (Optical character recognition) software. This will make the scanned document into a word file, and thus allowing you to edit it. Most OCR software are expensive unless one was provided with the printer.

Also, if you are scanning in as a PDF, most of the time you will not be able to edit it due to limitations with software. Most computers only have PDF Reader, unless you specifically purchased Adobe Acrobat full version (retail price $300)

I have a hp 1310 AIO Printer how do you scan documents to computer using such programmes as ms word


MS Word cannot open scanned documents to edit. You need to run a scanned document through an OCR program (optical character recognition program) which converts the scanned document into a text document. Then you open Ms Word and import or open this text document to edit or change the text.

I am unable to manipulate a document after scanning it on our Netsacn 4000


Most of the scanners require that you set up the scan first and the software that comes with them will NOT do much if any editing. Be sure and export the document/photo in a FORMAT that is editable. Then use other software such as photoshop or MSWord to edit the document after. The software provided with scanners is usually pretty lame when it comes to editing.

UNABLE TO MAKE CORRECTIONS TO DOCUMENT


Scanners put a graphic image on your computer that is a "picture" as far as the computer is concerned and therefore, you cannot edit text because it is seen as pixels and not characters. In order to make a scanned document editable, you'll need to use the OCR function in your software (Optical Character Recognition). This is assuming your printer came with OCR software, if not, you'll need to purchase an OCR software package in order to convert images into editable documents. You should be able to find such packages for less than $50.00. Check your documentation (and help files) and look for OCR in the index or search the help files for OCR to see if such software came with your printer software package.

I am trying to scan a document from HP 4280 All-in-One printer HP Solution Center to My Documents. However, I am unable to type Destination (My Documents) in the Scan to. I have reinstalled from the CD...


Generally, the scan to field will designate the the type of program that you want to use to view/edit the document. An example would be microsoft word.
Once you scan the document to a program, you can then save it in any folder on your hard drive, including "My documents". However, if you chose to leave the scan to on "Scan to a File", the scan will automatically go to c://useraccountname/My Documents/my scans.

You can then go to my documents/my scans and move the scanned document to whatever location you would like on your hard drive.

If you have any additional questions about this information, feel free to contact my by replying to this message.

Thank You,

Brian

I am unable to edit documents that I have scanned. I have tried to download the OCR driver but I am still having a problem. Please help


If you are scanning text as an image, the image cannot be editred, because the computer doesn't know the image is text.

You have to scan with OCR to edit text.

You can use PaperPort to add text to scanned images

Scan document


Is very hard to alter a scanned document if you are not sure how to, especially without the help of an editing software. but try to scan it to text if you have Word it sure will help, scan it to Word and after is saved you can type or erase certain portions of the document, browse trough the tools tab to search for the option that will suit better the type of work you want to do on your document. If you have Adobe Acrobat Professional this is very easy to do, you only have to scan the document on Adobe format and using the advanced editing tool.
