Is there an issue with my scanner not recognizing text?

Yes, there could be an issue with your scanner not recognizing text. There are a few possible causes for this issue, such as incorrect settings in the scanner’s software, insufficient resolution or encoding, poor lighting, or poor contrast. In order to troubleshoot the issue, you should first check the settings in the scanner software, making sure they match the type of document you are scanning. Also, it may be helpful to increase the resolution or encoding of the scan, if possible. Additionally, it might help if you adjust the lighting and contrast of the scanned document, allowing the scanner to more easily recognize it. If all else fails, you may need to try a different scanner that has higher resolution or better optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities.
