Text Cannot Be Edited After It Is Scanned to a Word Processing Program
After scanning into a word-processing program, the text in the original is not editable.
process of changing text from an image to editable text is called
optical character recognition (OCR). Text should automatically be
converted in the OCR process when the Send To destination is a

text boxes, and spreadsheets might not be editable. The border around
them makes the OCR program read them as images. Readiris OCR, which is
included with the HP Officejet G and K series, can recognize these
images. Instead of selecting the word-processing program in the Send To
list, send the scan to Readiris. Use the Table Drawing tool on the
right side of the window to change the type of image to a table, and
then use the OCR. The text inside of the box should now be editable.
Handwritten messages might not be captured by the OCR process.
