Did the HP All in One not come with any OCR software? OCR software is
usually provided by the scanner manufacturer... although I have to say in my
experience that it's not usually very successful. I've found I have to take
more time editing it than I would have done if I'd typed it in manually. If
I'm scanning in documents, I do tend to scan to PDF and edit in Acrobat, but
that program certainly isn't free.
