Using the Copy Machine to Scan Documents (WOW!)

This lesson is available in both written, and video forms.

The Basic lessons allow you to make a digital copy of a document that is basically similar to a digital picture (you can't copy it to Word or Open Office).

The Advanced lessons show you the couple of extra steps needed to use OCR, or Optical Character Recognition. This will let you (hopefully) cut and paste the document into Word for editing! Remember, though, the scanner can't always recognize goofy fonts, and underlines or italics can also reduce accuracy.
