    Hey guys! Is there anybody knows a program that can convert (copy) words in an image to a real document that can be edited from Word?

    Thanks

    MODI .. Microsoft Office Document Imaging ... Found under Microsoft Office tools ..
    Document Imaging will read a tiff image > Word
    Document Scanning will read the scanner .. to a tiff Image > Word

    Or .. Abbyy Fine Reader ... or ... Scan to Office
    http://www.abbyy.com/products/

    Many scanners come with an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program but most of them only read to a text format and only work from the scanner.
    MODI or Abbyy is usually much better and can work from Images in the computer.
