HI

I've uploaded some newspaper articles scans from my Scanner to my desktop.

Is there a software that will let me cut and paste from scans or convert scans to text?

Thanks

You need Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Software. Usually you get some bundled with a scanner but not more recently with 3 in 1 printers. Abbyy Fine Sprint is the most common
