I have a four page document that has a few images in it. Is there some software (free)nthat I can use to scan it and edit it in Word?

You may well have received an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) programme with the scanner that you are going to use to scan your document. The OCR programme will attempt to convert the resulting picture of the text in the scanned document into editable text.

Thanks good people. I did finish up using MS Office Document Imaging and it did the job. Bought the scanner 2nd hand so didn't get any software with it Peter but am going to have a look at FreeOCR this week. Thanks Lazarus.
