There are differences between American English and British English. For instance, the Americans drop the "o" in words like - Honour / honor, armour / armor, favour / favor, etc.The USA already speak English, so your question does not make any sense

Yes You can Scan a Word and edit it. But I should say it is not very easy job. It is very Time consuming.

plus you will need special third party tools to actually properly format it in the original manner.

The problem is after scanning any document, the scanned document is considered as an IMAGE file. And Image files are hard to format like word 2003

But this process is not impossible

How do i get canon imageclass mf 6540 to scan


Such printers with scanners built into them are know as Multi Function Printers. It is possible you have downloaded a 'printer only' or generic printer driver software.

Here are the links to the 3 bits of software you require:

I cannot get it to scan a document and allow me to edit information on the document.


To edit information on a scanned document you must use a OCR (Optical character recognition) software. This will make the scanned document into a word file, and thus allowing you to edit it. Most OCR software are expensive unless one was provided with the printer.

Also, if you are scanning in as a PDF, most of the time you will not be able to edit it due to limitations with software. Most computers only have PDF Reader, unless you specifically purchased Adobe Acrobat full version (retail price $300)

How do I use my x5495 to scan a resume and then to edit it with my Dell XP computer?


You'll need to scan the document with an OCR software package (Optical character recognition) that will recognize the letters themselves and transmit them to word processing application, such as Word for Windows. Most scanner packages come with some form of OCR utility, so check your installed software. You may already be set up!
Best of luck, William

I have a hp 1310 AIO Printer how do you scan documents to computer using such programmes as ms word


MS Word cannot open scanned documents to edit. You need to run a scanned document through an OCR program (optical character recognition program) which converts the scanned document into a text document. Then you open Ms Word and import or open this text document to edit or change the text.

Scan document into text


Scanned documents are image documents and they need to be converted using an OCR program. The Optical Character Recognition program converts scanned image documents into a text file which you can open with a Word program and edit.
You need OCR programs such as -
OmniPage 17
ReadSoft
GOCR (freeware)
Tesseract OCR (freeware)
Microsoft Office Document Imaging (included in MicroSoft office Tools)

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 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.
