Why won't Turnitin accept my scanned PDF file?

TurnItIn will not accept PDF files which do not contain highlightable text - e.g., a "scanned" file, which is often simply a picture of text.  The student will need to save their file electronically as a PDF and add any additional pages to the PDF using the green Insert Page icon in Adobe Acrobat Pro, on any University PC.
