Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Film Scanner

I want to save scanned document as a .doc using CanoScan 8400F

I am working off an IMac desk top computer.  I don't want to save documents as .jpeg or PDF.  The scanner doesn't seem to offer a desktop save as a .doc.  I hate the way to .jpeg or PDF looks, after all I am trying to save a black and white printed document not a photo.

Scanners only see millions of dots. Unless it has software to convert a picture into a document, all documents are seen by scanners as pictures made of of millions of dots. Software is available to convert it to a Microsoft Doc format but it is very expensive.

Use the OmniPage software that came with the scanner. It will allow you to save in a variety of formats, including .doc.

I wouldn't use OCR, too difficult. I would save your scanned document as a jpeg and edit in Photoshop. From Photoshop thay can be printed or saved as a pdf file.

How to scan a document using Canon MX310 to Microsoft Word


you can try it by using the scanner option on the control panel. If you are using windows operating system, go on start menu, select control panel and double click scanners & cameras. Double click the scanner online and start scanning the documents. Save it in the format you want but it is usually default as jpeg.

scanned documents usually saved as .pdf file if you run the scan option directly on the printer. By pressing the SCAN button the printer. So do not use this option if you do not want the documents to be saved as pdf files.

Scanning documents for report cards


It will scan pdfs but you would need adobe professional to add the data for each student. It cannot scan a document and make it into a Word doc because this is essentially an image scanner and .doc files, etc. have more complex embedded information that cannot be captured by a scanner because that information is not visually present (i.e. exact font size, type, formulas, etc.). You'll have to find some other way- sorry!

Scanned a word document, saved as jpeg file


By default all scanned documents are images (jpeg), OCR software converts the image to text for use with Word. I do not believe the scanner can tell what format to use without your input. More information is available here at HP's Online Support.

Canoscan 8400F problem


If possible, try it on another computer. If the symptom is the same, then the scanner requires service.
