Microsoft Office Document Image Writer is a program for scanning documents and converting them into digital images. The program can be used to convert a document saved in Microsoft Document Imaging, or MDI, format and Tagged Image File Format, or TIFF, to a DVD, CD, network server or computer's hard disk.
Microsoft Office Document Imaging allows one to perform optical character recognition while working with an MDI or TIFF file or when scanning a document. This makes it possible to copy text from a scanned image. The text can also be faxed into Microsoft Office Word. The program can be downloaded online and installed into the computer.
