I am looking for a scanning software that will allow me to scan to Microsoft Word. If it has PDF it would be a bonus.

I would welcome people's direct experience with such software.

I am happy to use Free or Paid software.

Hi,

I suppose it is not about scanning as a picture but scanning as text - so look out for OCR software, this might be just what you need.

Best wishes,
Markus

Look into OmniPage Pro http://www.nuance.com/for-business/by-product/omnipage/index.htm
They (Nuance) has been at this a long time. For OCR that you need, changing the PDF raster into Word Vector...the recognition takes little training. Although about $100 more than ABBYY, you get more for the money. Compatibility with multi-function printers could very well effect bottom line. This software can be used for document imaging and digital storage (sharepoint).

We use ABBYY Finereader on 10000 clients. It's the best.
