Yes, but you have to have a scanner that scans in text files and not just
images. I went to Walmart back before I learned better and bought a regular
scanner, but I didn't know to make sure I could just scan text with it.
Unfortunately, it only scanned images, and so be sure to look at the
scanner's manual, or if buying a new one, check it out before buying it. I
have a client who uses a regular scanner to scan like this. Your scanning
software, I believe, that comes with your scanner, should allow you to have
this option. It has been a while since I set hers up, and so I am a little
fuzzy on the subject at the moment. Just FYI. Anita
