I love the way the paperport lets you edit text, delete text, and add text to
scanned documents right in the scanner software - hp and others makes you use
ocr which is a pain - since it does not work with xp sp2 is there other
scanner software that works like this that would work with sp2?

Omnipage was OCR, and quickly became a resource hog, quirky in
operation, and a large learning curve for the average user.
A search for scanning software in this niche catagory, can come up with
application that run in the thousands of dollars!
My best advice would be to wait. Until you can find the product you
want that is supported within SP2, has the features you want, and
supports your scanner.

The latest version is 10 which will probably work fine with XP SP2..

http://www.scansoft.com/textbridge/

I have to say that it is cheaper to buy a new scanner with OCR software that
works with XP SP2 than it is to buy the program separately..
