    A software that scans a document (text only and can detect the text) and makes it possible to type and fill into the document as I would a word document. Basically, is there a program who can convert physical tet on paper into digital form?

    Thanks in advance

    With my HP all-in-one, the software is there. When you save it as a word document, you must specify that it be editable. Or is that edible?:D
