but your scanner may have Optical Character Recognition (OCR) built in. If it does then you can scan it and save it as a file and word will read it and you can edit it.

Hanx!

Hi, you need a program called Omni-page from Scansoft.

Do you have access to a scanner? If so you may be able to use text recognition to convert the document from the scan back into word format... depending on the scan quality, mistakes will need to be corrected, but would be much quicker than a redo from start.
