Scanning a 'fill in the blank' Document

Dell Optiflex 7010
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I scanned a document as JPG. How or what do I need to do so I am able to 'fill in the blanks' on the document and then save.

Scanning a 'fill in the blank' Document



What you want to do is to scan the document in as an Editable PDF document (OCR).


This feature may be included in your printer software.


If your printer software does so the feature might be part of your Full Feature Software (for HP printers).


If your printer software does not include OCR, you can use a free version of the software to create your Editable PDF file.
