How to edit a scanned mathematical document in MS Word 2007?

Hi Everybody!
                        Is there in anyway possible to either convert a scanned image of a printed mathematical document into word doc. so as to edit it later on OR some other third party software that could capture an image of such document,where editing can also be possible.
                                           Thanks & Warmest regards.

Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text. It is widely used to convert books and documents into electronic files, to computerize a record-keeping system in an office, or to publish the text on a website. OCR makes it possible to edit the text, search for a word or phrase, store it more compactly, display or print a copy free of scanning artifacts, and apply techniques such as machine translation, text-to-speech and text mining to it. OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision.

You should be able to find free versions on-line or at least trial versions for you to test tio see if it will work for you. Try this web based OCR:
