I sometimes get documents that are scanned and sent to me as a jpeg. How can I convert them to word documents and or PDF files for formal presentation?
Is there any conversion programs that can do this, either free or paid?

I am using Windows XP along with Microsoft Office 2007.

    IrfanView offers a pretty flexible printing interface for JPG files. If you have PDF Creator, you can print to PDF that way. IrfanView also has a free add-in for OCR that is pretty decent, so if you actually need to convert the images into text you can past into word or open as a text file in Word, you can do that. It's here.

    Finally a decent batch freeware batch OCR is NIH's (yes, the government National Institute of Health) MyMoprh. It's here:

    There are probably better batch OCR freeware. Working with MS Office 2007 - 2013 OneNote app might be usable too. Its the replacement to the Document Imaging app of older versions of MS Office.
