    What software is available to scan a document and save it as a text file?
    Kind of like when we used to have typewriters, we could put the preprinted
    form in the typewriter and insert the data where needed.

    I can do my own google search thank you.

    Thought maybe I could save a few hours of looking this way.

    Found one called simpleocr. Might work for what I need.
    The trick is, to print it nearly as exactly as the original.
