Is it possible to scan documents to the rtf format, currently you are only
able to scan to tiff jpeg, bmp and one more image formats. I have customer
who needs to scan document to rtf format so that changes can be made to the
file

Thanks

You are talking about OCR (optical copy recognition) A tiff or bitmap or
jpeg (or other graphical) image is processed by an OCR program to output
text that can be handled by an editing or word-processing program. Google
OCR software to see what's out there...

I think that it is "Optical _Character_ Recognition"
