No way!It would look just as it does with your naked eye. Some scanners have limited "zoom" capability for perhaps x2 magnification, but no "standard scanner" can magnify x24, x42, or x72 as required by many microfiche cards.
can I somehow read the card using a standard scanner attached to my pc?

Suppose I scanned the card and converted to WORD text by OCR; highlighted the text and then changed the text size to 48 or 72; and then used the 500% enlarger provided by WORD. Would it still be unreadable do you think?

If your scanner can scan at resolutions of 7200dpi or greater, you might get something readable, but I doubt it.
