Maybe it was a pdf and not jpeg I copied and saved. I don't remember. If you 
want to send me a page as an attachment I'll see if I can copy it to a word 
file , Then you can see if yu can do it.

memory card in a non-proprietary format (PDF, I think) that can then be 
converted by any OCR software to RTF.  Since there is no aperture 
determination needed or focusing involved with fixed length focus, the only 
think left is does it have smart cropping tech in the saving 
process.

Most scanners are initially set up to take pictures, not do OCR.  That's 
why there is Kurzy and OpenBook (don't get me started on 
OpenBook!!!).
