    There are apparently some "scan to text" programs out there for Linux...

    JOCR: http://jocr.sourceforge.net/

    Ocrad: http://www.gnu.org/software/ocrad/

    OCRopus: https://code.google.com/p/ocropus/

    Tesseract: https://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/

    I have not installed or used any of these so I have no idea on quality. I believe some of these are in the software center. If any of these work for you, let us know.

    Depends primarily on how you save the scanned documents ...

    If you save them as image files (i.e., jpg, gif), they are actually pictures, not documents, and a document editor is not going to be able to do anything with them.

    If you have a way to save them as plain text files, any text editor can then modify them. If you have a way to save them as rich text files, a word processing app (LiberOffice, MS Word) would then be able to modify them.

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
