Not so much the scanner, more the software used to read the scan.

Obviously the scanner has to be of reasonable quality (most are for this purpose) then everything depends on the OCR software. I use Omnipage 16 click here - not cheap at £80 - you can get it cheaper. You'll find most scanners come with a basic OCR program which will suit most people for general use.
