I have looked everywhere and have gotten different answers for: How to type text into a scanned document. There is almost no way to figure this out.
The key is how the document was scanned. If you scanned it as an image like a jpeg, you basically just took a picture of a document and you can’t edit the text. You could use an image editor program to add some text on top of that image, but you don’t have any text to edit.
If you want to be able to edit the text you need a program with OCR (optical character recognition) that will scan documents into your computer as editable text such as ReadIris. The free OneNote App for Windows 8.1 has this function. Documents scanned with software that has OCR can be opened in a program like word and edited.
