If you have scanner, than by definition, you should be able to scan anything. Whether it be a picture or text. Once it's scanned in, it should be saved some where in your computer? I'm not sure what file type your scanner saves to. Can you find the file at all that it scans? What is the extension. Example filename.TXT and TXT is the extension. Text should be even easier to scan than images.

ACtually anything you scan in comes in as an image. I'm guessing that program doesn't allow images? If you can scan it in as a pdf file and if you can get the Full Version of Adobe, than you can copy the text from the pdf file and than paste it over in your program.
