Hi Experts,
Is it possible to convert a document scanned and saved as jpeg to word format so that I can edit the document? Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

you need to use a ocr programme with your scanner - this will then give you the text to edit in word

Thanks eth. I know this. I am just trying to save myself time having scanned the doc whilst I was doing fotos with Photoshop. At any rate, I thought the knowledge would come in useful. If the above is not poss. I'll of course have to scan again using ocr. Anyone?

No as said above you'll need to use the OCR program.

OK, got the message.

You can use the original scan in the OCR programme. I do it all the time .
