    You might want to specify your needs a little more precisely. What do you mean by "scan?" Are you just trying to put equations into MS Word documents?

    Well, i had scanned a few pages paper which contains equation but it came out with some weird character,symbol, numerator and denominator apart.....So, i am finding a scanning program that can recognise well the equation and convert it to Word document. Any idea?

    Ohhh you mean do some kind of optical character recognition (OCR)... I would very much doubt any such software exists.
