Converting scanned documents into Word documents

Scan the text pageyou want to convert into a Microsoft Word document.
Save the scanned image as a *.gif, *.jpeg file, if possible save it as a *.tiff file.
If the image file is not a TIFF file then OPEN that saved image file, go to File - Save As and name it as a TIFF file.
Go to Start- Programs - Microsoft Office Tools - Microsoft Office Document Imaging Go to File - Open and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.tiff format.
Go to Tools - Send Text to Word. You will get a prompt stating this process will taketime, Click OK.
This will take several minutes depending on your computer's speed and the size of the text document.When it has completed Microsoft word will open and the word document can now be edited and spell checked.
Spell check should be done on the document after conversion because not all the text may be converted correctly.

Convert PDF to MS Word


The conversion may not be perfect, depending on factors such as the complexity of the layout, and whether you have the document's fonts on your system. For simple business documents, Acrobat's Save As command does a decent job of converting to Word.
  • To check or change the settings that Acrobat uses to convert PDF Content to Word format, open Preferences (choose Acrobat > or Edit > Preferences in Windows).
  • choose Convert from PDF from the list of Categories on the left side of the dialog box.
  • Then choose Microsoft Word Document from the Converting from PDF scrollable list.
  • The window at right shows you how Acrobat will handle the conversion, including whether it will include comments, preserve columns and down sample images.
  • To change these settings, click the Edit Settings button. (Alternatively, you can change these settings when you convert any given document by clicking the Settings button in the Save As dialog box.)

How can I convert my pdf files to Microsoft Word format?


You certainly can convert an adobe file to editable word file but if you think that all OCRs convert the document 100% into editable format then you are about to make a costly mistake. Your converted document is bound to have errors which you need to remove ( unless of course your original is a picture perfect document). No OCR on this planet guarantees 100% correct conversion in all documents all the time.

Therefore it is extremely important that you must proof read your editable format document before you start to edit. If you don't do that it can be a very expensive mistake you made in life.

Some people (including me ) pay $2.0 per+ per page and get it edited by experienced staff on a paid site like http://www.onlinedocumentconversion.com.

How do I add text to a scanned document?


Hello,

Below instruction might be helpful to you.

With the PDF document open in Acrobat 7 Standard or Professional, choose File > Save As. In the Save As dialog box, choose Microsoft Word Document from the Format (Mac) or Type (Windows) pop-up menu. Then simply click the Save button, and open the document in Word for editing. The conversion may not be perfect, depending on factors such as the complexity of the layout, and whether you have the document's fonts on your system. For simple business documents, Acrobat's Save As command does a decent job of converting to Word.

Thank you.

How do you erase text from a pdf file?


Hi,
Chances are you're using Acrobat Reader to read the PDF (portable document format) file.
You need Acrobat "Writer" (aka Distiller) to actually make changes to a PDF file, as the reader can only read the image file itself.

If I scan a blank application to be completed after its scanned in order to print the completed application, I can't find a way to add and or edit text on it.


if you scan a document it will be a photograph   editing a document is done in a text application like word or notepad   the two are completely different things   i use text bridge  or Paperport Professional  it will read the text off of the scanner bed and convert to a text document   it may make some errors but will still save much time rewriting the document  add the saved text to word and change the font and spacing to try to duplicate the original document  save it  then edit it to your hearts desire

Scan a Document and Need to edit in Word 2007


Most of the time a scanner by default, will scan a document in a tif or other image file format. That means that the scanned image is actually very similar to a photograph. In order to edit the text, you first have to convert the image using something that's called OCR software. OCR is a process that the software uses to look at a scanned document image and determine what characters are on the page. It's not always very accurate but that depends on the quality of the scan and on the OCR software being used. You must have received some sort of scanning software with the scanner. Hopefully it containes some sort of OCR software. Some scanners will save you this extra image manipulation by having a setting that allows you to scan directly to a word document. Usually in that configuration, the OCR software automatically knows to convert the scanned document image in order to automate the process. But either way, you first have to install the manufacturer's software. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

I want to edit docs in version 8, when save the pdf as text opens in notepad and formatting is trashed is there any way we can set that to open in word with formatting intact


You will lose a lot of document format if you open a pdf file in word. I suggest that you use an appropriate pdf editor, like Adobe Acrobat full. It has all the features that you need to edit, create pdf files, also export doc files to pdf
