    Do you have Microsoft Office installed?  There is an OCR scanner module in it that should work with your scanner.

It should be under MIcrosoft Tools.  It's called Microsoft Document Scanning.  If you don't see it, you can installed it from the Office CD.

Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X1270 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.
For the Lexmark OCR scan software, it is only available on the Lexmark installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

Trying to scan documents from my x1270 lexmark downloaded driver from lexmark site, doesn't have ocr application. Where can I get the application?


The Lexmark scan software (OCR) can only be installed using the installation cd that came with the printer. It's not included in the driver you downloaded from the Lexmark website since it's a big file. Anyway, if you don't have the installation cd, you can request for it for free by contacting Lexmark Technical Support.

Tried everything, printer X1270 won't hook up with


The trick (sometimes) to a good install is to try uninstalling it first. You can go here for instructions on how to uninstall your X1270. Lexmark suggests also removing OCR software, Fax Solution, Toolbar, etc. Start completely from scratch! This support site will also have the lastest download for this product and your Windows 7. Try the software install again.

I hope this helps!

How do I install the OCR application?


I guess you are not selecting a printer while you giving print command.

Click on Print, A rectangle box opens with options, on top you will see name, see it shows your printer name " Lexmark X1270 and not microsoft office document writer.

If correct printer is selected then it wont save an image or word file, it will perfectly print your document.

Cheers

Without CD you can't install OCR or Optical character recognition software because OCR function is not installed in scanner but in computer. Usually when you buy new scanner you get CD or DVD with drivers and some lite version of OCR and some other programs for graphic editing.

OCR application error with the Dell ALL in ONE


OCR is a software provided by Dell to convert a scanned document to editable text(word) document. If you scan without OCR software, printer will scan it as a Picture and you can not edit it.

Now here is your answer.
When you install Printer CD, it also install OCR software (Abbyy Fine reader) along with it.
You might have uninstalled the printer drivers and reinstalled them by downloading it from Dell support site.
I must tell you that Downloaded drivers from Dell site DOES NOT contain OCR software.

Solution:
1. You can download free trial version(15 days) from Abbyy.com
Click here to download

2. If any of your friend or relative have printer listed below then you can use the same CD to install the OCR software.
List: Dell 924, Dell 926, Dell 928, Dell 944, Dell 946, Dell 948, Dell 964, Dell 966, Dell 968.

location on Disc:
D:\OCR\setup.exe

3. You can scan using MS Paint.
Click on Start > All Programms > Acccessories > Paint
Click on "File" on Top left corner.
Click on "From scanners and cameras"
Click on "Scan"

It should be able to scan.

4. If you want to use Dell All In One Center.
You can disable OCR option for scanning and it will scan as an image.

Open Dell All in one center.
Click on Advanced scan options Under scan,
Uncheck "Use OCR software".
Click OK and try to scan again using Dell All In One center or using the printer operator panel.

Please revert for any further assistance.

You should contact Lexmark themselves. If the software was out of date when you purchased the hardware, they should be able to provide an updated disc to you, or at least help you access the OCR software you're trying to extract. Also, if you're scanning photos/pictures, you may just want to change where the images are being sent to.
