So you can save it as a photo image in JPG or something and link it as a media file.
OR, you can use a character Optical Character Recognization (OCR) program to convert the picture to text and copy that text into a note or somewhere.
The better OCR programs are rather expensive, so for a page here and a paragraph there, you might as well just type it out yourself.

You can not copy and paste directly text from the picture of text that you just scanned.
The OCR program looks at the picture and translates the picture into text characters or letters and words as best it can.
Some scanners may come bundled with a basic OCR program.
You can do a Google search for "OCR" to learn more and find some programs.
