Epson Scanner and Text

I have the Epson Perfection 3490 Scanner. When I scan text into Microsoft Word or Office I am unable to edit the text. How do I go about doing this.

You need to scan the text with an OCR program, then save it in Word.

My scanner is the 3170 (almost the same as the 3490. You will almost certainly find that you have ABBYY Finereader already on your computer.

Do you have Epson Smart Panel on your desktop?

If so, double click it and, under Documents there is an Icon that says: OCR, Edit Text.

Use that to scan text that you would like to edit.
