Hi,

its like this, the OCR or the SOftware installed in your computer is limited. If you're trying to scan a document which has a picture or with text that uses different fonts like monotype, or those that are not usually being use for normal documents, usually it wouldnt detect and it become distorted. Anyways, here are the steps that i want you to follow.

1. Open solution center. (click start, go to all programs, go to HP, then click on SOLUTION CENTER). or you can see SOlution Center on your Desktop.
2. Click on Scan Documents, then the Scan documents setting will open. Change the settings to these.
* SCAN TO: Microsoft Word.
3. Then, hit scan.
4. After scanning, the folder My Scans will open automatically, just go ahead and open the scanned document.
5. From there, you can start editing the text.

..remember, the scan a document is limited, it will not read all types of fonts. if the document is using a "times new roman" or "arial" the scanned document appears to be almost the same with the original. But, if the scanned document contains pictures or stylish fonts, that would make the document distorted.

Please let me know if you still have clarifications.

Thank you.

I have a problem after scanning, I cannot bring the document up in MS Word to edit. The document arrives on my computer screen but I can not edit it


You need OCR software installed in your PC

go to www.hp.com then type OCR application then download it in your pc

OCR Application File name: s.gif 23902_hpcom_OCR_120_003.exe [1/1, 54.84M]

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=oj-72836-2&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
Text Cannot Be Edited After It Is Scanned to a Word Processing Program
Issue After scanning into a word-processing program, the text in the original is not editable. Workaround The 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 word-processing program. If it does not, check the items in the following list:
  • Select Editable Text as the image type in Scan Settings . In Windows XP, this setting is automatically selected if Scan Document is selected in the Director program.
  • Scan at a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi) for correct OCR conversion. Check the default resolutions in the Scan Settings on the Resolution tab.
  • If portions of the scan are cut off, turn off the Auto Crop feature in the Scan Settings on the Scanning tab by clicking to clear the check mark.
  • Tables, 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.
    NOTE: Handwritten messages might not be captured by the OCR process.

How do I scan and save to my computer


Dear Sir,

plz follow this step to solved your problem,

1.
Turn on your all-in-one printer and computer. Check the connections between the two machines.
  • Step 2 Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.
  • Step 3 Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.
  • Step 4 Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
  • Step 5 Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
  • Step 6 Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
  • Step 7 Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.
  • Step 8 Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.
  • Step 9 Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

    Can't scan multiple pages into single document - reinstalled drivers but still can't - used to be able to. How do I fix this?


    http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/…

    I think this says you need Professional Mode rather than Full Auto Mode.

    Under File Save Settings in the Professional Mode, you should see buttons for Add Page / Edit Page / Safe File.

    Basically, you keep adding pages then finish.

    If you already have multiple .pdf files that you wish to combine, Acrobat Professional (not READER) can do that.

    Good luck,
    - CarlD
    - - -
    I copied the text but I think you won't be able to see the images here:

    4. Select PDF as the file type setting. The current Paper Size, Orientation, Margin, and Compression setting are displayed below it.

    5. If you need to change any of the current PDF settings, click the Options button. You see the EPSON PDF Plug-in Settings window:


    Select the settings that match your document and click OK. You return to the File Save Settings window.
    6. When you are finished selecting file settings, click OK. Epson Scan scans your page and displays this window:


    7. If you are scanning only one document page, or you don’t need to edit your pages, click Save File and go to step 10.

    If you are scanning multiple pages, click Add page and replace the first page on the document table with the second page and click Scan. Repeat this step for each page in your document. When you are finished, click Edit page and go to step 8.
    8. You see the Editing Page window displaying thumbnail images of each scanned page:


    If you want to include all the document pages in your PDF file as they currently look, go to step 9.
    If you want to delete some of the pages, click the odd pages or even pages icons, or click the individual pages you want to delete. Then click the delete icon to delete them.
    If you want to rotate pages, click the pages or use the odd pages, even pages, or all pages icon to select the pages. Then click the left or right rotate icon to rotate them.
    Note:
    The delete icon is not available when all document pages are selected.
    9. When you have finished editing your document pages, click OK. Your document is saved in a PDF file in the location you selected and you return to the EPSON Scan window.

    10. Click Close to exit Epson Scan. Source(s): http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/…

    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.
