Can't find how to scan to microsoft word

I'm trying to scan documents to microsoft word using my HP Photosmart C4580 all-in-one printer, scanner, copier.  I've tried scanning to txt format but get nothing but gibberish - text that doesn't make sense.  I can't seem to figure out how to scan to Microsoft Word.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Unless I am mistaken. Scanners save scanned documents as a picture . To convert from a picture to a text or word file of some sort would take special hardware and software.What you scan is a picture of words not a text or word file.

This printer DID have an option of scanning text into word. We did it with a 45 page document, went directly into MS word. Tables and all, editable text. I updated to the latest driver to fix an error I was having during shutdown, and with the new driver, the option of "Scan to MS Word" has gone away. Now all it seems to want to do is scan the image and drop the image into word.

How do I scan something from my wireless printer to my computer


There are two options.

Option 1
Make sure your computer is on. Insert the document you want to scan. Click on the scan button on the printer. The document will automatically be scanned and saved in your computer in mydocument under mypicture->my scans folder.

Option 2
Insert the document which you want to scan in the scanner. From your computer invoke HP Solutions Center. There you will see options to scan the document.

Please note for both the options you must have installed all the softwares which came with your printer.

My scanner is sending my scans as images not text.


you must convert to text, most scans save as pdf or tiff (yours is most likely a tiff) choose save as... and change extension to .wrd or .doc
