tiff file editor advice

  jimdoc 12:39 03 Oct 2006

Following an illness I have a limited writing ability I would like to be able to scan documents, which I can using Microsoft Office which creates a TIFF file,
and then be able to edit the document,e.g government forms and save and print. Preferably Freeware since I do not need to do this very often,thanks if you can help.

Your scanner probably has OCR, Optical Character Recognition. Scan using that, and you can edit the scan.

Just had a look, it may be called 'Editable text'.

thanks for the help,ocr works up to a point but I can edit but then it will only prin text not images or images but no text I have added also how to change font size and any boxes on form come out as some sort of control character, any ideas thanks Jim
