Scan to a Word Processor – An Overview

Normally, a scanned document is simply a picture of the original. Even though you can see words on the scanned page, your computer doesn't. That's why you need special software to scan to a word processor. The right software, typically paperless scanning software, can identify the words in the scan and send them to a word processor so you can use the text. Usually this takes two steps: scanning, and text recognition. But FileCenter lets you scan to a word processor directly, giving you the text you need without messing with extra steps.

Why Scan to a Word Processor?

Normally if you want the text from a document, you scan it, save it, open the scan in OCR software, extract the text, copy it, and paste it in a word processor.
