From your description, your scan was in a graphics format. To accomplish
what you want to do, you will need to scan to an OCR application.
Hopefully, the scanner came with an OCR program, or you might be able to use
third party software such as ViewScan Pro that comes with OCR capability.
Making the scan sharper can usually be accomplished with a graphics/photo
processor, such as Paint Shop Pro.
Saving to a word processor can be done, but without an OCR application, you
will end up with a picture of the document, instead of editable text.
