      There are two programs that have been mentioned at Computer SIG meetings that have a search for text feature, as well as other useful features. Among the list of freeware from our Feb 13, 2010 meeting was Foxit. It is available at:

      I have recently been using a program called PDF-XChange Viewer, also known as pdfxviewer.  I prefer it to Foxit as it allows you to add comments, etc. to your pdf file and then save the modified file without a "watermark".  It is available at:

      This enable you to search and comment pdf files produced by your scanner.

      I hope this helps with scanning and seaching your paper documents.
