Question about Lexmark X Office Equipment & Supplies
I recently changed from Windows XP to Windows 7 and have issues when trying to create a PDF or Scan and Edit text (OCR) so it can be edited. When I try to create a PDF OR Scan and Edit a doc (OCR), I receive an error message that reads in both instances, "An image-to-text (OCR) application is provided for you on your CD in the OCR folder. Install your OCR software and try your operation again." I have used the CD to try installing the OCR, but the selection is grayed out. My boyfriend had trouble loading the program from the CD last night onto Windows 7, so he downloaded the software from the Lexmark website. Problem is, it's still not working correctly. Can you provide any links or information so I can resolve this issue? I have school projects due and I'm running out of time.. THANKS!

The software you need is Abbyy Sprint OCR. If it's not installed, I suggest running the printer setup again, making sure it's selected when you get to the software list. Perhaps you unchecked the box when you ran the installation the first time, or didn't know what it was and uninstalled it from your computer. You may be able to find it by hunting through the CD, but it will probably be easier to run the setup again.

If it truely has an optical character reader(OCR) built into the scaner it would not provide the software for it since the software is rather a large program an cost in excess of $100 just by itself.

The only way you can install the Lexmark scan software (OCR) is by using the installation cd. It's not available for download on the internet. If your computer is not recognizing the installation cd, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to request for that. They can send you one for free. Hope this helps.

You need to install Lexmark OCR scan software in your computer to do the job. Just reinsert the printer installation disk in your computer and install the OCR scan software. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.
