  1. Scanner No longer able to scan document and edit


    I have a resume that has been downloaded for a while and when necessary was able to correct and change when ever I needed. I desperately need to update it and I can't. I have had to scan it scans to my laptop as a PDF. I no longer can scan and save as a doc. Why?

    :)

  2. How To Edit A Scanned Document

    Technically, scanned documents are not editable. However, if you use the Scanner application supplied by the Manufacturer, you should be able to Scan the document in a different format that allows easy editing.

    For example. Canon Scanning app allows me to save as PDF which can be edited online easily. JPEGs are tough to edit.

    1. Are you able to use scanning for other documents?
    2. What is the make and model number of your scanner?

    How To Edit A Scanned Document

    Hi Rocky, most scanners can only scan to an image file format - it depends on the software supplied with your scanner . . .

    What you need is OCR support - Optical Character Recognition

    Click the link below to download a free utility that will scan your documents to an editable file using OCR
