You can't easily edit an image file.
To get the image to an editable format you need to run a OCR program to
convert the graphics to text.
Since you have Office, you probably have a way to do this.
Look under Start - All Programs - MS Office Tools
and see if you have MS Document Imaging
(I have Office 2003, and I have this program, but I upgraded from XP, so I
have some stuff that carried over)
You can scan & convert to text with this program. You should be able to
save to a Word file. However, the formatting may get all messed up, so I
don't know if it will be all that usable.
Or, if your HP Director software works with Vista (mine doesn't), it should
have a OCR feature.
