I don't have the experience with Canon that I have with HP but I would guess
that WORD is using the Windows Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service and so
like the Fax and Scanners module cannot run the scanner.
But as Kim has found in this thread:

Can you install that Canoscan Toolbox and not just the driver? Then you should
be able to scan from that application even if not from others.
Otherwise I guess you just have to wait on Cannon.
However there seems to be a driver for VISTA on their website if you persevere
through their links. Note this if you upgraded from XP to VISTA:
<< To use this machine with a computer upgraded from Windows XP to Windows
Vista, be sure to uninstall all Canon scanner software (ScanGear or scanner
driver, application software, etc.) before upgrading to Windows Vista. >>
Note three is a driver file and a toolbox file down at the bottom.
