Re: OCR program

You have to install a programe called: ABBY FineReader 5.0 Sprint. Although there are newer editions available, this is the programme that comes with the cd and is available to download free of the net. Hope this helps.

Re: OCR program

I have one of these myself. I am assuming you mean the main page is gone. I am willing to bet you have had some spyware or malware attack the driver settings in your registry, as well as a faulty cd. Go to lexmark main web site, download the correct drivers for your printer (google lexmark) and download to your harddrive. Save it on a new cd. Run a program like regcure that will allow you to fix registry errors. Now, run antispyware just to be sure, as well as virus check. Housecall is free and really good!!! Fixes all it finds. Uninstall printer. Reinstall with new cd'driver. Happy printing.

How do i download ocr for lexmark x1100 for vista i have lost cd

The Lexmark OCR software can only be installed using the installation disk that came with the printer. It's not available for download online. If you don't have it or you lost it, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support for assistance. Thanks.

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 for free OCR tools you can use for the same purpose.

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.
