When I click the Scan Button in the OCR dialogue box I am asked to :
"Specify the Programme where the scanned image is transferred"
O do not know what to do ?
I wish to photo copy text so that it is editable in a Microsoft Word document. This was a simple procedure with My HP scanner - anyone help me to do this with my new Canon Pixma MP610
This software is unstable and far too complex. The instructions offered are abominable, but this sequence usually works for me.. Good Luck David B

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.

You need to control the scanner thru your PC with canon software that came with your scanner otherwise you cant scan anything..first open the printer/scanner software ,select scanner,then place your document and command "scan" on your PC..thats it..
I had the same problem and I got it to work. I have Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 on my computer. Here's what I did...
Go to "Start" then "Control Panel". -Click on "Programs and Features". -Scroll down to Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 - click on that and then click on the "Change" link above. -A box will pop up, click on "Add or Remove Features" and then click "Continue". -Click on the "+" next to "Office Tools" -Click on the "+" next to "Microsoft Office Document Imaging" -Click on the down arrow next to "Scanning, OCR and Indexing..." -Then, click on "Run from my Computer" -Next click on "Continue" at the bottom of the dialogue box and your configuration process should begin
Once completed go to the start menu and type in "Scan" into the search box. Go to "Microsoft Office Document Scanning" Once there, plug your scanner into you computer, chose what color you want your scan to be in, and click on the picture of the scanner to the right. To make my scans clear, I had to click on "Scanner..." and chose KODAK ESP AiO as my scanner even though I have a KODAK ESP-3 printer/scanner.
I hope these instructions weren't too confusing and I hope this helps some of you out! My scanner was causing me a lot of frustration for a while!
No problem, you're a mere 17 steps away from creating a high-quality document using Canon's cutting-edge OCR software!
1. Load doc onto platen.
2. Press "SCAN" button.
3. Make sure "DOCUMENT" bar is yellow and press "OK" button.
4. Make sure "SCAN TO PC" button is yellow and press "OK" button.
5. Press "BLACK" button (w/ white diamond on it) located under the word "START" (might take a couple of tries as this button tends to stick a little.)
6. On computer screen, find image of doc that was just scanned and select it by clicking on little check box under image so a check appears. MAKE SURE NO OTHER DOCS ARE SELECTED AND/OR DE-SELECT THEM NOW.
7. On computer screen, find "double chevron" bar in lower left-hand corner and click on it.
8. Click on "EDIT/CONVERT."
9. Click on "CONVERT TO TEXT FILE."
10. This will bring up a new window. Click on the "blue arrow" with "1-2-3" next to it, located in upper left-hand corner of computer screen.
11. This will bring up a new window with three buttons to choose from. Click on the middle button, which says "PROCESS ALL UNRECOGNIZED PAGES"
12. This should start the OCR process and bring up a new window.
13. At this point, I just hit "CANCEL" and highlight & copy the OCR text by myself. (This will allow you to get around the "SPECIFY PROGRAM" program you referred to in your post.)
14. Then I open a new doc in Word (or whatever word processing program you use) and paste it directly into the new doc.
15. Then I save it into whatever folder I need to save it in.
16. Make sure to read through the doc and correct any OCR typos and/or "artifacts."
17. Save one more time to make sure you don't lose your work and you're done!
OPTIONAL 18th STEP: Open a beer and do a big bong hit -- you've earned it, soldier!
are you pressing ok on the printer? all of your scanning should be done via the MP460 navigator. check your applications under the Canon Utlitiy and click on the MP460 Navigator button. scanning needs to be done via that - not the actual printer.
refer to the dialogue box when you are on the MP460 navigator. lower left area has a Save bar, when you click on it tow options: save to PC or save as PDF.
