My scanner came with this software called ReadIris. Unfortunately, this software is not free. If you have a HP scanner, the software might be included.
You want an OCR (optical character recognition) application. I think most scanners come with one. I used to use Text Bridge and another I forgot the name of.
Check the scanner's bundled stuff first and see if it came with an OCR app. If not, you can look into commercial products like ABBYY Finereader and Omnipage. There are free/open-source OCR tools out there, but quite frankly they're no match for their paid counterparts.
