Scan the text pageyou want to convert into a Microsoft Word document. Save the scanned image as a *.gif, *.jpeg file, if possible save it as a *.tiff file. If the image file is not a TIFF file then OPEN that saved image file, go to File - Save As and name it as a TIFF file. Go to Start- Programs- Microsoft Office Tools - Microsoft Office Document Imaging Go to File - Open and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.tiff format. Go to Tools - Send Text to Word. You will get a prompt stating this process will taketime, Click OK. This will take several minutes depending on your computer's speed and the size of the text document.When it has completed Microsoft word will open and the word document can now be edited and spell checked. Spell check should be done on the document after conversion because not all the text may be converted correctly.
A PDF file can be placed in any folder on your computer and opened with a PDF viewer like Adobe Reader. You can convert a PDF to a document (DOC) file but you cannot open a PDF file with a document editor like Microsoft Word. You may want to scan your document as an image file like TIFF or JPG then use the Insert Picture function to get it into a DOC file. I hope this helps.
You are going to want to find any OCR software that works for your printer. OCR is 'Optical Character Recognition'. It will take the scan and convert it into a text document, which is either already compatible for MS Word, or easily converted itself.
