Scanning Documents Question Does anyone know how you can add text to a document once it has been scanned ? TIA

Scan the document into an OCR program, then it should be editable, resulting document can also be a little bit scrambled in translation sometimes so be wary of that too.

How do you make it an OCR program ?

Optical Character Recognition there should be a suitable program included with your scanner.

I dont think my 8yr old scanner has OCRAnother way, is too scan it in as an image. Open in your favourite image editing program (Paint, Gimp, Photoshop etc) and add text. You will notice the difference though, and of course its not suitable for editing text.

Most OCR programs will work on any scanner. I use Abbyy, http://finereader.abbyy.com/?param=137544
