You should use any OCR software e.g. the well-known Omnipage by nuance.com

If your scanner has OCR functionality built-in, then you should have a disk included with the scanner to enable you to install the OCR software. You could also take a look in the program you use to actually scan from the scanner - there may be an OCR option listed there.

Alternatively, you are looking at another OCR download. SimpleOCR is a free one but I've not tried it myself so don't know how it compares to the accuracy of the commercial software. http://www.simpleocr.com/
