Support Scanners Perfection Series Epson Perfection V19 II

How do I scan a document so I can edit the text in word processing software?

  • You can scan a document using a process called OCR (Optical Character Recognition). To edit the text, use a word processor with your output format.

    To scan and use OCR, you can use the Epson Scan 2 OCR Component. The Epson Scan 2 OCR Component is included with your product.

    Note: The Epson Scan 2 OCR runs in the background when using Epson Scan 2. You can install the Epson Scan 2 by running Epson Software Updater.

    Character types and originals that may be difficult for OCR software to recognize include:

    • Handwritten text
    • Items that have been copied from other copies
    • Faxes
    • Text with tightly spaced characters
    • Text that is in tables or underlined
    • Cursive or italic fonts and font sizes less than 8 points
    • Originals with creases or wrinkles
    • Originals that have been copied several times
