    Hello,

    I would like a freeware or shareware program that will allow me to scan a form into the program as a text or doc file.

    Do you know of one.

    TIA,

    I think you are talking about something that has OCR (optical character recognition) capabilities.

    What type of scanner are you using?

    cheers

    Hi
    I took a look at your product online - states one of the downfalls is that it didn't come with an OCR package
    ... so
    I went to CNET downloads and searched for OCR in Windows
    http://download.com.com/2001-20-0.html?legacy=cnet

    It came up with quite a few ... for example, one that caught my eye was Readiris Pro 6.0 (search result http://download.com.com/3000-2064-4995922.html?tag=lst-0-6)
    Description
    Readiris Pro is an Optical Character Recognition package that allows the conversion of everyday documents such as letters, magazines, newspapers, scientific documents, photocopies, faxes, and more into editable text. It allows you to preserve the format of the original document, for example directly in Word. Readiris Pro recognizes up to 55 languages, recreates table objects in Word and Excel, recreates the original layout (even for columnized documents, including tables and graphics) and works with all flatbed and sheet-fed scanners.


    The user ratings and license types are displayed within the search results.
    does this help?

    cheers
