Software to convert a scanned page to text that can be edited

Does anybody know if there is some free software that will convert a scanned page to text that I can edit? I misplaced the actual word document but still have a hard copy of it.

Thanks

OR OCR via

Thanks, After doing some real digging I found the file I was looking for on a CDr that I backed up a year or so ago.
