Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

This is a powerful capability that eliminates the need to type something if it is already in a pretty legible text form.

Omnipage Professional

Place text page on scanner
Under Process menu, select AUTO--that will scan the text and choose zones
Under Process menu, select Perform OCR--that will give you a page with the OCR'd text.
Save as... as useful format--This tended to crash the machine. Instead, launch MS Word, and then select the desired text (or all) in the converted page in OmniPage, and then copy and paste into Word. That seems to work ok.
