Choose OCR (Optical Character Recognition) if you mean to edit what you are copying, otherwise it would be like a photograph of what you are scanning and you will not be able to modify it as text. The original document should be very clear and the text dark, if not, then OCR will 'guess' what it thinks it saw and you had better be careful to review the entire document for errors. A good way to proofread a document for spelling is to look at it word by word from its ending toward its beginning. If you don't do it this way, then we tend to read it in context and read it so it makes sense even though there are misspellings. It wouldn't hurt to read it then from the top to the bottom to be sure it makes sense.

How do I use my Scan feature and send the image by e-mail?


If your drivers are instaled correctly, the BROTHER Control Center working fine, and you have setup a mail account in say OUTLOOK or another e-mail software, you can scan to e-mail.
Put the document on the flatbed or the ADF, open the Control Center. Select the Scan function, and the Scan to email option.
The document will be scanned, the e-nail software will open, inviting you to enter the email address. that is all it takes.

How to use the scan ( Brother mfc 420cn ). Thanks!


With printer turned ON, and connected either through a USB cabe or ethernet, open the Control Center CC3. Click the SCAN button on the CC3 widow to select SCAN to Image, Scan to OCR, scan to E-mail, or scan to file. If you have not configured these options yourself, you will find the scanned documents in the user's My Pictures/ CC3/SCAN folder.So with CC3 open, the document on the glass falt bed or in the ADF, select the type of scan and press the corresponding button. A small progress window opens, etc..

When scanning to ocr I get brccMCtl.exe has encountered .... and it shuts down. I can scan to email, file, and image. But Not to OCR. The Brother Control Center 3.00 is the problem.


I deleted all Brother programmes from by PC, cleaned the registry and used the Brother Uninstall programme first. (I restarted the PC after each deletion)
Then I reinstalled the latest Brother printer driver software without the PaperPort SE 11 programme.
Then I installed the Paperport programme separately.

It worked.

Thanks

Can not scan document


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Brother MFC210c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Not able to scan to pdf file with Brother MFC-240C


What you seem to want to do is not possible. Let me explain:
A file that has its data in the Adobe company Portable Document Format (or a pdf file) contains various objects that are described to the computer using a superset of the PostScript language, some of them can be images.

A file that comes from the scanner is first a very organized set of pixels and gets put into a more compact form by using a well known process as defined by the Joint Motion Picture Experts group. This is a roundabout way of saying that it has a format that isn't PDF.

What you CAN do:
a) open the jpeg file with a Macintosh, using the Print command from the file menu make a pdf file that has the image in it.

b) buy and install a PDF printer driver on a Windows machine, and then follow the same process as A above.

c) Use your favorite PDF creation program to make a file with the image embedded.

Scanning


You can do this through the microsoft word. When you scan your document, your program will ask you where you want your document to go,you can direct it to ms word. you can send your email from microsoft word .easy

Note: it is important to install the software that came with the printer.It is this software you are going to work with to send your scan to ms-word,

Good luck

Ocr software


If you have lost the cd you can order another one from brother support (expensive!)

Have a look at eBay. Buy a defective mfc. Make sure that the cd is part of the offer.

If you want to use ocr only go buy omnipage software (scansoft). paperport includes a light version of the omnipage engine
