Scans for editing.

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by John Whitaker, Feb 27, 2005.

  1. Is there any software that will scan documents and save them in an editable
    format, Word for instance? I'm on Photoshop 6 but that can't it seems.

    John.

    OCR it is called and you can download free programs from the internet.
    You will need a scanner to do it.

    Thanks Kev. Can you specify a particular website where I can get the
    software please? I have a scanner but don't think it will run OCR. Nothing
    like trying though.

    John.

    Scanners don't do OCR. OCR software does OCR. Your scanner CD may have OCR
    software on it...did you check? OCR means Optical Character Recognition.

    If you don't have OCR software with your scanner you need to get OCR
    software to convert scanned documents. Your scanned document is a "photo" of
    the paper. The OCR software analyses the scanned document and converts the
    images of characters to characters in a text file.

    Search google for more info, and programs that do OCR.
