Can't scan a text document into word form with my HP 3030

I am trying to scan a text page and turn it into a word document.
It seems it just tries to make a picture out of it and I can't get it to make a word document. This leaves me with no way to edit the text n the document.

Is there a scan program out there that I can add so my 3030 will do this.

TIA

I am trying to scan a multiple page document into a single pdf document on my HP C7280 but it scans each page to individual images. Any suggestions?


In Adobe Acrobat:-
From 'File' select 'Create PDF', 'from Scanner'.
Scan the first page and the program will ask of you for 'Next' or 'Done'.
Select 'Next' until you have scanned the last page, then select 'Done'.
You can also make the document searchable by carrying out an OCR on it under 'Documents', 'Recognise text under OCR', 'Start'.

Whenever i scan to pdf, the output of images/graphics on the documents are not properly displayed. They are usually displayed as some funny-looking characters. for example, when i scanned a documents with...


You are scanning the pages in OCR (Optical Character Recognition) mode. This allows scanned text to be converted to (editable) text, and is more useful when scanning to a Word document for example.

If you just want to scan a page and archive it, look for a standard (non-OCR) scanning option, and specify PDF as the output format. If it's not available, you can just as well keep the pages in TIFF format, which also allows for multiple pages.
Also, if you have MS Office, there's MS Document Imaging tool included, that allows you to scan to MDI multi-page documents.

If however you want the page OCRed, I don't know which software is included with your scanner, but generally you must investigate the OCR settings to find an option to scan a page with text and images, instead of text only.
Some OCRs require you to select areas that contain text, leaving the rest as pictures, other do it automatically.
If you cannot make friends with your software that's bundled with the device, I would suggest looking for FineReader. Even an older version of FineReader is far superior to any other OCR software I've seen.
Good luck

How do I scan colored paper and still read print? HP Scanjet 8270


First thing to try is just play with all the scan settings to see what gives you the best result - try changing resolutions, type of document, type of output document, contrast, brightness, type of scan. If this doesn't give you any better results, then one of the best ways to do this is to get some plastic sheet of the same or almost the same as the predominant colour on your forms (you can go one step further and make a multi coloured filter if you are feeling creative and your forms are all identical). The text jumps out of the page and most scanners will give you a good scan - just make sure the filter is not too thick/dark. Hope this helps :)
