Scan settings

HP Recommended

Good day all -

 

My scan results are coming out as photos.

How do I change scan settings  (or whatever)

so my scan results  are  Word or similar editable

documents that show up in My Scans folder?

 

Thanks for your kind help.

No, your low end printer does not come with an OCR software to do that. You can buy ORC software for your computer and you can scan using normal Scanners including AIO printers to scan as editable text.

 

There are few free OCR software around, they are not perfect. Please try
