Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have just done a search on Google as to how I would convert a scanned document (of a typescript) into a document that would recognize the characters just like any other Word document. But ofcourse I went and forgot that I am using Ubuntu and not Windows. So is it still possible somehow to do the same on Ubuntu is what I am wondering. I would really appreciate any help.

Thank you.

I had a similar problem to this a while ago. Try uploading the file to online-convert.com. It will take a while, but the webapp can handle just about any format. Good luck!
