    What you want is OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software.

    Google for it.
    Omnipage pro, Abbyy Finereader to name 2. Your scanner should come with an OCR program on the install CD.

    You also need to prepared to do a bunch of editing and formatting after you scan it. OCR is far from perfect.

    Google for free ocr software, and I'm sure that you'll find something. I Use Abbyy when I have to (work), so I couldn't advise you which is better.

    http://www.simpleocr.com/Info.asp is a free OCR package that was mentioned favorably in another thread here. You don't need to rescan to use OCR, you feed it the graphics file.
