I can certainly recommend this free online OCR service: http://www.free-online-ocr.com.
If you would rather use a desktop application, there are many good ones, such as ABBYY FineReader or OmniPage. You can find more information on this website: http://www.ocrworld.com

    Due to the contract Lexmark has with their OCR provider you can only get it off the CD that came with the printer

Everytime i scan a document on my lexmark all in one it doesn't come up as a letter in order for me to edit it for my changes.


When you scan a document, basically all you're doing is taking a picture of it. You end up with an image file that you can view, but not a text file that you can edit. You need an optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the scanned image into text.

The CD that comes with an all-in-one printer or standalone scanner almost always includes some OCR software. You didn't give a model number so I can't look it up on Lexmark's site to see what downloads are available, but you can check for yourself if you don't have the disc. OCR capability is also available if you have Microsoft Office installed, and you can find under "Microsoft Office Tools". Several free OCR applications are also available on the Web.

OCR programs aren't 100% accurate. The don't always get it right, so expect to have to do some correcting in the text file that's created. Some fonts, sizes and page layouts confuse the software, and some programs are better than others. But in any case, it's better than having to type the entire document in by hand.

Need work around for ocr error...don't have disc


If you have MS Office, you can use their document imaging and scanning tools to do the scanning and/or conversion. There are other freeware, shareware and commercial tools with this capability as well. Just google 'OCR software' to locate some or use www.downloads.com.

Lexmark X2500 driver is missing OCR software


Sometimes companies only support only the basic drivers. The OCR software is on the CD (s) that came with the printer. Suggestion. Try to order the original CD from Lexmark., or search Ebay for programs that have OCR capability. You can use OCR programs from other vendors as long as they are stand-a-lone programs. Just make sure you have the original disc so as not to infringe on copyright privileges.

Note: you can buy OCR programs. Check Ebay and Amazon. They are usually better that the programs that come on the OEM disk.

Cheers.
