Customer Question
I scanned a document...

I scanned a document to a flash drive and then loaded it into my documents on my hard drive. From there I loaded into word and saved it. However, I am unable to print it in the green color that was the original and I haven't been able to change the color in Word. I al so need to change some of the text and I haven't been able to edit the document in Word. Help!!!!

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your computer or device?

Technician's Assistant: Does your computer have an On-Screen Display button for brightness?

It's a Dell about 4 years old?

That does it.

Hello Sir/Madam. Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to help you. I am Jins here to assist you. You can't edit a scanned image in Word. You should use an optical character reader program such as Abby Fine Reader to create a document from the scanned image.

If you like, I can remotely connect to your computer and show you how to create an editable document from the scanned image.
