    Why have you saved the scanned document into GIF at first place.

    MS Office 2003 comes with sw that converts TIFF,Bitmaps picture into text.
    You can also use OmniPage, Basically you need OCR software

    As file format is GIF, convert GIF into TIFF. During conversion you may not get good quality TIFF file, so there might be problem in conversion into text.

    You can try

    use ABBY FINE READER, prolly the best OCR out there..

    its not all that fast, but scans pages directly and can export them strait away to word/other programs.

    well, my problem is I have these huge list of documents (rather old) scanned by my friend in GIF format.
    Now I want a soft copy of those ( in text format)!

    Are there no alternatives to good old typing them?
