How to scan embedded image file in Word

I was downloading the state PMR and SPM state trial papers when I came across document files with images which cannot be edited in Word. My FineReader will not allow me to scan Word files. After some experimenting, I found a way to do it. This is how I convert the so called Word document files with images embedded in them to editable Word document.

First, I open the file in Word. Then I save it as a PDF file. Now my FineReader can convert it to editable word document.

I would like to share this experience with readers of this blog, especially teachers teaching PMR and SPM classes in English and Bahasa Melayu.
