Hello and Good Evening Everyone

        I have an HP Deskjet 2543 which has the capability of scanning documents and images.  With that said, I am wondering how I can use this feature of my printer to scan documents and import them into WordPress for editing and publishing purposes.  

       Any feedback given in reply here will be greatly appreciated.

       Thank you

       George

Hi Joe and William,

            Thank you very much for the well organized and easy to follow suggestions given to my question.  Upon closer inspection of my HP printer/copier/scanner setup, I did notice that it came bundled with some HP software for scanning applications.  If for some reason my HP software not have the needed OCR capabilities for scanning text documents, it is good knowing I have alternative utilities which can be substituted for it as pointed out by Joe.

              Thanks again : - )
