So I don't scan documents much. But, every now and again my mom has me scan something for her. The problem is she needs it in a .doc .txt .rtx or something she can write in. As you know they usually scan into a picture.

So how do I change this? Is there a setting on the printer or do I need to download third party software?

After some Googling, I found that there are OCR programs.
So does anybody know a good OCR?

A lot of scanners come with OCR software as part of the driver package, google the model of your scanner along with .doc or OCR and see what you come up with.

It's called re-typing.
