Scanning text on F2180

HP Recommended

Brand new to my F2180. I want to be able to scan text into Word so that I can edit it, but don't seem to be able to manage it.  Advice please.

 

Many thanks,

 

Aitch

Hi,

 

           Since I posted recently and had no replies I've been digging around and see that many others have had the same problem - wanting to scan text.

 

           All I can tell you is that I have solved the matter to my own satisfaction and have managed to do what I wanted by scanning some magazine cuttings successfully into Word.

 

 

           I downloaded from WWW.simpleocr.com their freeware, loaded it into my machine and it works. Easily and I am happy with the results. The pages I scanned had pics on them and I cut them off before scanning so what the scanner saw was a page of 100% text.

 

 

           As I say, it worked for me and my problem is solved. Hope it works for you too.

 

 

          All the best,

 

 

          Aitch.
