If your scanner is OCR capable, you can use that.
Most scanners come with OCR software, these days.

OCR - Optical Character Recognition
Here's an explaination:
Optical character recognition

If your scanner doesn't come with it, here's a free program you can use:

Office 2003 installs, usually by default a folder called "office tools", in that folder is an application called "Mircosoft Office Image Scanning". It will scan and OCR you documents and than allow you to save in a Word file.

Hope this helps. The image shows the folder and file on my machine.
