The scanner will always scan the documents as JPED or BMP, its the OCR software in your computer which will convert it to editable text.
if you dont have any OCR software then you can open the scanned image (TIFF) in microsoft office imaging software (something like that) and click on the W (Word) icon on the top toolbar to convert it to text

I cannot scan documents and edit them. I can only get my text as a picture. I have a MacBook Pro


Scanner in general do not recognize text; once a document is scanned, an OCR (Optical Recognition Software) must be used to recognize characters.

Some OCR software are bundled with scanners, and you aquire them from different download sites; I can help you if you are interested.

pls. vote for better service. Thanks

CAN'T SCAN TEXT


If you scan the document, make sure it is saved in JPEG format. What you do afterwards is to download FreeOCR. This program is free and works better than most of the ones you purchase.

Just install it in 5 minutes, open your scanned jpeg image and click on OCR button and in seconds, the program will bring it up in editable format for you to change, correct or whatever. Or just click on the OCR MS Word button, and it will open it up in Microsoft Word. Here is the link..

Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience...


Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.

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.

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one


I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.

Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document


Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.

Ocr


Use any OCR software and it will take care of converting the scanned image into .DOC file or .PDF file. Some OCR softwares require a minimum dpi output, standard being 300 dpi. Ensure that the image is clean and 'straight', deskew if skewed.
