    Default How to convert .bmp into .doc

    hi everyone,



    Just wondering if there is any third party software that will let me convert a .bmp into a .doc to have the text in the .bmp edited in office word 2007. I scanned a document and the scanner saved it as a .bmp now I'd like to open that scan document in word 07 as a text file to be manipulated. Is it possible to do this either threw word 07 or with through 3rd party software?

    thanks

    I would think that this not possible. You need to scan the documents with an OCR scanning program so that the text can be extracted. More info here: Optical character recognition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Welcome to TWC, you could try SimpleOCR its a free software for recognising type on a scanned document and turns it into an editable document. I haven't tried it myself but it may be a good starting point.
