SimpleOCR is a popular OCR software that can be used scanned documents to text file or word documents. It is a great software for those who wish to recognize there text from scanned documents. It is also a royalty free OCR SDK which developers can use in there applications

To use it simply insert the printed document into the scanner, SimpleOCR will then scan and analyze the text and will present it with an spell checker view so that we can correct any mistakes that it could have made. After that you can save the result to a text or word file.

There is a limitation with the free version. It will work with printed documents only. If you have a hand written document or a poor quality document that you want to convert, you will have to go for the paid version which offers such features.

For to download the software visit: http://www.whoismadhur.com/2008/10/…

Dear Alli K,

As far as I know any handwritten document cannot be converted into a text document. To my knowledge it is important that the design of the character which is going to be converted in to the text form be available in the pixelated conversion in the program which is going to convert the document in text form.

There are softwares available in the market which will help you convert fine printed data to any text file for editing purpose.

I hope you've got the required answer.
