Cannot find CD to instaff Scosoft Omni Page SE

I cannot find my printers installation CD. I need to OCR and save text to Microsoft Publisher. I have already downloaded the upgrade to VISTA and all components (copier, printer and scanner) work properly. The only exception is I scanned 34 pages of a famliy history that was typed on a typewriter many years ago. I would like to update the document but do not want to have to retype it all over again. I scanned from the OCR, and was ready to save as a text file and the error message appeared that the Scan soft Omni page SE is not installed. Install and then retry. I ahve looked and looked for the CD but cannot find it. Can you please help????

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.

I have a Dell 924 aio want to scan to "microsoft word" (default is Microsoft paint) i need an "ocr" disk ?? can you help so I can scan to Microsoft word thank you. brian


OCR stands for "optical character recognition." It is the software your scanner uses to convert a scanned image into a text file. In order to scan into Word or Notepad or any other program where you can edit text, you will need OCR software.

If your Dell 924 can use OCR, this software should be included on the CD that came with your printer. Insert the CD and run Setup or try to find a folder labeled OCR. If you can't find any OCR files on your installation disk then check the Dell website:

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.

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.

X5495 - OCR Program Missing.


Do you have MS Office 2003 or 2007? If so, there is a Microsoft Document Imaging tool that you can use to scan text documents. You can also search www.download.com for free OCR tools you can use for the same purpose.

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one


I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.

Go to the Lexmark website and download the full install for the printer application or run the setup on the CD. "Driver only" installations through Windows Add/Remove Hardware might not add the OCR components.

OCR


To scan a document for editing purposes, you will need OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. OCR software is not included with your model.
OCR software interprets the scanned document for editing purposes. The Epson driver alone only scans documents as image files and is not capable of this interpretation.
Some reputable OCR software programs on the market are:
Omni Page Pro
ABBYY FineReader Pro
Presto! OCR 4.0
Please understand that Epson has NOT tested our products with these programs. They do not know if these programs are TWAIN compliant and will import directly from our scanners. I recommend that you contact these companies for full compatibility information if you are interested.
