starting the process (seriously this time) of scanning all the tweedles records, all my tax returns & any other little thing of importance onto a hard drive thingy - you know the one outside of my computer. I found software that will help me create text documents rather than scanning a "picture" or GIF file; the software will also scan an entire IEP, for instance, into one file, page my page not as separate files for each piece of paper. I'm determined to get down to the file system I have next to my desk with only the current year's stuff with everything else on a designated external hard drive which will be locked in a fireproof safe. I've started this several times over the last year but didn't get too far. Have any of you done this? Any suggestions or can you tell what software you have used?
