Email scanned docs

I hooked up the scanner and am able to scan and email docs as a jpg attachment. How can I get the scanner to scan and email in pdf format.

I thought it was using the front buttons, but haven't been able to get it working.

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.

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.
