I am involved in a correspondence between myself a few others on matters as diverse as History, Politics and Philosophy. When I get an Email communication I can cut and paste it onto my reply and answer or debate points raised. However, if I wish to use something from a printed medium such as a book or pamphlet I am unable to read a sentence and type it accurately onto what I am writing. It may have something to do with the dyslexia I enjoy. I would like to be able to scan, copy and paste pieces from hard copy and then edit them but I have no idea if that is possible.
My operating system regrettably is Windows 10 although I'm so frustrated with it that I'm giving serious consideration to buying an iMac.
Thank you both very much for the information and which jogged my memory sufficiently to remind me that I did once have a go at using OCR but its a long time ago and was not very accurate.
I use Windows 10 within which is packed "OneNote" which among other things offers the opportunity to scan, select, paste and edit via OCR. I know it works because when I first used it a day ago I scanned the page of a book and carried out certain actions which regrettably I did not note the end result of which was a near perfect copy.
Since then try as hard as I have I have not been able to make it work with no success so I attempted to uninstall it and start again also with no success. I then attempted to check for Upgrades but a message came up telling me that the Upgrade is a 64 bit and I am with a 32 bit although I was certain that I was with a 64 bit so I’m quite confused.
So, can anyone offer me any guidance?
