If you want to turn the image into text that you can edit, you need software that does Optical Character Recognition (OCR).

Without knowing what version of Word you have, in some versions you can convert your scanned image using Microsoft document imaging. Go to tools tab and select recognize text in OCR. Go to tools again and click send text to word.

OCR software comes as "stand alone" or as part of some other software. Adobe Acrobat is a good example. If your version of Word doesn't support OCR, you could export your Word document as a PDF, and then in Acrobat tell the software to "recognize text." Then export the text as a Word file or as a .txt file and import that text back into Word.

I want to scan word documents to then edit them in word. All I end up with is the text with a box around it and I cant edit the text.


There is no scanning of a word document - you are scanning an image. If that image is a page with words printed on it or a picture , it doesn't mater to the scanner, to it all are pictures. So in the end you have a picture of the scanned image - in your case a picture of the page. Since you can't edit a picture with word you must convert that picture into an word document. For that you use an OCR program http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optical_character_recognition This printer has an OCR program in it, but you must activate and guide it yourself, it won't do the job automatically. To learn how to use it launch the installed HP Solution Center from your pc, it's a part of the driver that should have been installed with it.

UNABLE TO MAKE CORRECTIONS TO DOCUMENT


Scanners put a graphic image on your computer that is a "picture" as far as the computer is concerned and therefore, you cannot edit text because it is seen as pixels and not characters. In order to make a scanned document editable, you'll need to use the OCR function in your software (Optical Character Recognition). This is assuming your printer came with OCR software, if not, you'll need to purchase an OCR software package in order to convert images into editable documents. You should be able to find such packages for less than $50.00. Check your documentation (and help files) and look for OCR in the index or search the help files for OCR to see if such software came with your printer software package.

How do i use the scanner to print a document?


My friend, you have the cart before the horse. Let me explain.

The technology used to scan is TWAIN which means Technology Without A Interesting Name.

If you want your scanner to print your document, first you have to scan it into your computer, using your TWAIN software. You will want to import the scan from the scanner as a word document not a picture (of words).

Following that process, you will have to load the new document into a word processor of some kind and send the document to the printer.

Most 'all in one' devices also copy. Why dont you copy the document instead of scan it? I dont know ... but this is the process.

Reminder, if you just scan the documednt, you may end up with a picture full of words that you will not be able to edit. You must import it as a document if you expect to edit.

Thanks for posting your question to FixYa.com

Can't scan to word


Scanners do scan to pictures. The only way round this is to find some OCR (optical character recognition) software and "read" the document.

Cannot edit scanned document


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.

Scan in word 2007 documents using vista


From Word 2007 Help:

The From Scanner or Camera option for scanning documents and pictures is not available in Microsoft Office Word 2007. Instead, you can use your scanner to scan the document, and then you can save the file to your computer.
After you scan the document, you can use Microsoft Office Document Imaging to create a version of the document that you can edit.
Important The first step is to install Microsoft Office Document Imaging, which is not installed by default.

Scan document


Is very hard to alter a scanned document if you are not sure how to, especially without the help of an editing software. but try to scan it to text if you have Word it sure will help, scan it to Word and after is saved you can type or erase certain portions of the document, browse trough the tools tab to search for the option that will suit better the type of work you want to do on your document. If you have Adobe Acrobat Professional this is very easy to do, you only have to scan the document on Adobe format and using the advanced editing tool.
