Did You Know?Solid Converter is a software that converts a scanned document to Word and PDF formats.
* Please note: For carrying out the edit work, you will have to install Microsoft Office Document Imaging, which is not a default program.
➔ If you are a Windows 7 or Vista user, go to Start - Control Panel - Programs - Programs and Features. For XP users, go to Start - Control Panel - Add or Remove Programs - Remove a Program.
➔ In the list of programs that appear, navigate to Microsoft Office edition and right click. Select Change from the drop-down box that appears.
➔ You will be redirected to Change your installation... page. Select the Add or Remove Features option, and click Continue.
➔ Now, expand the Office Tools option, and click on Microsoft Office Document Imaging. Next, click on Run all from my Computer, and select Continue.
➔ Your Document Imaging tool is now configured.
➔ If you already have the scanned document, simply open it in Paint. If not, then go to File - From Scanner or Camera, and initiate the scan. As the document you are scanning is a text file, select the black and white picture or text option in the Scan option. Now, open the file in Paint.
➔ Now, go to File and select .tiff option from the Save As tab. Close the Paint program. This file is the basic document that will be worked upon.
➔ Go to Start - All Programs - Microsoft Office - Microsoft Office Tools - Microsoft Office Document Imaging option.
➔ In the Document Imaging window that appears, go to File - Open. In the Open window, select the .tiff file that we had earlier saved.
➔ Once the file opens, you need to select the text. For this, press CTRL+A and then CTRL+C. The text is now copied.
➔ Now, open a blank Word document and press CTRL+V, to paste the text. Now select File - Save As, and save the document in the .doc format.
➔ Thus, you have created the word document. Make the necessary changes to the file and reuse it.
