    We also have the same problem of converting the scanned printed pages into safe files for attachment to emails.

    We have a Cannon PIXMA MP 600 copier/Fax/Scanner. Any advice appreciated.

CAN'T SCAN TEXT


If you scan the document, make sure it is saved in JPEG format. What you do afterwards is to download FreeOCR. This program is free and works better than most of the ones you purchase.

Just install it in 5 minutes, open your scanned jpeg image and click on OCR button and in seconds, the program will bring it up in editable format for you to change, correct or whatever. Or just click on the OCR MS Word button, and it will open it up in Microsoft Word. Here is the link..

Scannanning of two pages in one document


There is a couple of ways to do this.
1. Scan each page and use an Optical Recognition Program to convert each page into a text and then place the text into a Word document.
2. Scan each page and save the images as a JPEG file then open a blank Word doc file and place each image on a separate page.

Not able to scan and print as like copier


When you use a regular copier, it doesn't save, right? It just copies. That's the whole idea behind the Copy program that came with your scanner - for your scanner to operate as a copy machine. What you want is document management software.

Therefore, the very best solution is to download a (free) program that will convert files (Word, Excel, etc.) into PDF files. Click here for a list of such programs.

Suggestion: Never use image files for document management because they don't have any of the necessary features, such as the ability to search the contents of a digital document, the ability to comment, etc. And you want a program that will convert into PDF - try to stay away from other file formats as PDF (Adobe) is the "standard."

Email scanned docs


You don't. Scanners save everything as a Picture. Test is not text, it is a combination of thousands of dots that make up a picture. It takes an OCR and very complicated software to read text from a picture.

REadiris won't convert pdf to word


Converting a scanned PDF to Word document requires OCR technology, so that it can extract the text out of an image. Not many PDF converter can make it. You can try the online OCR converter called OCRterminal.com, it can convert scanned PDF to Word, 20 pages for free per month. Hope it helps.

Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document


Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.

Ocr


Use any OCR software and it will take care of converting the scanned image into .DOC file or .PDF file. Some OCR softwares require a minimum dpi output, standard being 300 dpi. Ensure that the image is clean and 'straight', deskew if skewed.
