How do I scan a document so I can edit the text in a word processing program?
You can scan a document and convert the text into data that you can edit with a word processing program using a process called OCR (Optical Character Recognition).

OCR software cannot recognize handwritten characters, and certain types of documents or text may be difficult for OCR software to recognize, such as:

  • Items that have been copied from other copies
  • Faxes
  • Text with tightly spaced characters or line pitch
  • Text that is in tables or underlined
  • Cursive or italic fonts, and font sizes less than 8 points
