Do file servers automatically sort files by type, e.g., collects all PDF documents to one directory, and all pictures to another?

If by an image file you mean JPG or PNG, then there is no text to copy. There is only a picture of the text. It’s exactly like taking a picture of a printed page with your camera. As others have mentioned, you can use any of a number of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) programs. These programs look at the image and create text, but t are far from perfect. You need to carefully proof read the document. The other thing you can do is paste the image file into the PDF, just like pasting a picture in a PDF. You still don’t have text, but at least you know there are no OCR transcription errors.

Type on PDF: All You Need to Know

You could even do some quick testing in Photoshop of the text you have just made, before you print and make your copy. I can see how this method might seem more reliable. But even if there are no problems in OCR technology, it might be a very long time before you get it right. You’ll need to do a lot of practice, and that is not always possible in schools. For example, you might have to test on a computer keyboard, or print out your own document to check its quality. You'll also need to scan the document in a scanner. To do all this, you could use some optical character recognition software as discussed in more detail below, but it is also possible to do it a couple of ways. There is also a way to copy text over a video, which uses the same technique. But.
