    Hello.
    I have a lot of articles from newspapers (danish) that I need to get into word documents so i can translate them to English. (goggle translator)
    Dont know if i should buy a scanner that has OCR software,,,if so.. what scanner and software is good enough?
    OR if I should buy a cheap scanner and buy software online?..if so..what software is good enough for newspaper articles (not in brand new condition) ?

    I bought a Canon Pixma all-in-one to scan all my bills and documents and its OCR seems really good. It automatically orients and converts anything I throw at it. I got one of the top of the line models for around $150, but there are other models well under $100.
