This is a function of the optical character recognition (ocr) software, not the scanner. Most scanners have bundled software that include ocr and retail ocr software is available. Good quality originals are necessary to minimize the amount of manual corrections and the ease of making those corrections is what you want in the ocr program or you end up better off retyping a document if 100% accuracy is required. Graphics are a consideration when scanning mixed documents so don't rule out cutting and pasting those separately if necessary in Word. Take the time to master the software if this is a common task for you keeping in mind that better software usually merits the extra cost if it saves you time. Don't neglect the scanner settings for resolution as the software works only as well as what you present it to recognize. A Google search on scanning will help you on specific tasks as there are whole books on this subject. ~Steve Medley

I am trying to scan a doc, but don't know how to set up the scanner. I am running MS office 2007 on XP- OS


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software (used for scanning documents for editing) is installed on your computer. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. No downloadable driver is available in the Lexmark website. Just insert the install disc into your hard drive to install the additional software on your computer.

I want to Scan a page on Lexmark X6150. Please guide me how to set the Options and Select buttons. I pressed the start button after pressing the scan button. It does do anything.


Find the "menu" button on your printers keypad and push it. Use the up and down areas on the printers keypad to advance from choice to choice. Find the option that says something similar to "scan settings" . Push the "ok" button or the "enter" button on your printers keypad to open this option. Continue scrolling with the up and down arrows and using the ok or enter keys on your printer and locate the "scan to" choices. Set up your software choice for scanning text documents and pictures. Most people want to open and edit text documents in software like "Microsoft Office" in your computer. Choose a photo editing software installed in your computer to send pictures scanned on your printer to. When these settings are set and saved, turn on both the computer and printer and try scanning from printer to computer again to check and see if the problem is solved. If you experience any other issues, pleas clarify what they are and I will try and help you solve this right now before I leave for work.

Scanning - edit text


The scan software(OCR) can only be installed using the installation cd that came with your printer. It's not available for download since it's a big file. If you have the installation cd, just insert it in your computer to install the software. If you don't have or you lost it, I advise you to contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275). They will be able to send you one for free. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

I want to scan a paper and i want to save it as word so that i modify it. How can i do it?


It depends on if you have the full software installed. The MP160 documentation indicates it came wth ScanSoft OmniPage SE. Open MP Navigator and choose this program, you can output the scan as a text file. If you did a custom install, you may or may not have installed the program. If you omitted the program, do a new custom install.
OmniPage is an OCR program and will output to a number of formats (you will choose File, Save as) after scanning. Word can import RTF and most other choices as well as .doc files.

If you don't have the software disc, the software can be obtained from this URL:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=13368

Alternatively, there is a free OCR program (simpleOCR.com) that will do the same thing. However it doesn't handle text in columns (newspaper or magazines) very well.

I hope this helps.
