Scanning from hard copy into MS-Word?

I have a hard copy manual that I have been asked to edit. It is several hundred pages long. I have taken it to copy shops who say that they can scan into PDF but that moving from PDF to MicroSoft Word will result in loss of text, formatting, etc. My $150 all in one machine can scan (albeit one page at a time)... show more I have a hard copy manual that I have been asked to edit.

My $150 all in one machine can scan (albeit one page at a time) from hard copy directly into Word. Does anyone know of a place or technique that will allow one to do the same using a sheet feeder, etc.?
