    Scanner problems

    I use an HP psc 1315 xi. With XP, Microsoft Office Tools would allow me to
    scan and convert the file created to a word file. Hence I could manipulate
    the document as needed. This option is not found on the Vista os. How can I
    use Windows fax and scan to be able to do this once again? I simply want to
    be able to Scan documents and place them in Word so I can make needed changes.

    Re: Scanner problems

    Office Tools is a part of Office, and is not a part of Vista.
    I don't have Fax & Scan, but I do have Office 2003 installed, and I can scan
    & OCR to Word with
    Microsoft Office Document Imaging.
