Scan to Text

(OP)
Windows 7; HP Envy 5530:

Previously had an Epson scanner which offered the capability of scanning a text document, "reading" the scan, and then copying the text in order to paste it into another program for editing purposes. Have not found that capability on the 5530; only that it will scan a document to .tff -- which, of course, is not the same and does not offer the ability to actually edit the text.

Was I mistaken in believing that the HP Envy 5530 would have such a basic, common capability? Or does it? And, if so, where does one locate it?

Thank you / appreciated.

Hey, hikermann.

You ought to know as a veteran Tek-Tip member of sixteen years, that Tek-Tips is more than GETTING the right answer.

How about SHARING the info that you “found...on-line” that answered...
