Re: text

You have probebly set your scanning method to save as text document, you need to change it to jpg, TIFF, bmp... from your scanner tools/option/preference menu.
This menue should appear when you click import/aquire from your chosen program or you can find it through:
Start >> Control Panel >> Printers & Scanners or Scanners & Printers or Scanners  then find your scanner and right click on it and click Properties.
Good Luck

They are photos. You need to use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert them to text, so they can be looked at in Word.

Scannanning of two pages in one document

There is a couple of ways to do this.

Seperates the pictures from the text when scanning

Stop scanning as an OCR. Scan as a PDF or photo and it will scan it exactly as it was on the scanbed.

When scanning for OCR OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION it is translating the text for notepad and saving the pictures at the end or in separate files.

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.
