Hi, Is it possible to scan into "word" instead of a photographic programme. Or is it possible to read a scanned page in word and then print it out, rather than in a photographic programme, I am running XP home....Thanks Val

What you require is OCR Software. This scans text and converts it into Word Processing form so it can be edited etc.

There are many products to choose from. Search the web for "OCR Software" there will be many hits
