scanned documents

I have a Canon MX882 printer and when I scan documents I can only scan them as PDF's.  Is it possible to scan the document and save as a "Word" document?

Re: scanned documents

Hello ddyjac.


Unfortunately, the MP Navigator scanning software can only save scans to JPEG, PDF, BMP, TIFF and PNG format.  Specialized OCR software would have to be used to save documents in Microsoft Word format.


However, a basic OCR option is available in the software that would allow you to scan basic text documents into Notepad.  Once this has been done, you can copy the text and paste it into Microsoft Word for additional editing.
