Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it is possible that you have to "inform" TextBridge OCR what scanner you are using and how it is connected (USB or LPT1) either in Preferences or Tools/Options if those are present.

A temporary workaround is to proceed using the simple scanning method, save the scanned image as a jpeg file. Open TextBridge OCR, and File/Open the image file.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

You don't mention the specs of your PC or what other apps are running (either on your desktop or in the system tray). My first thoughts are that you are running out of RAM. OCR is pretty intensive - may be it hasn't actually locked up but is just taking a while.

Does the N122OU have OCR capability?


OCR can work on any Scanner, I Believe that the Software is what converts to OCR. I Have A CanoScan N659U. Using Microsoft Office Document Imaging software scanned 150 sheets of genealogy that I do not have to retype. OCR has been around sense about 1928 however, not until about 1974 was the principal used with Flatbed scanners. They do have a few Open source OCR scanning software's available, and they have serval online OCR services. I Prefer the MicroSoft Office 2007 Document Imaging Software myself.

When I try to scan I get a message about OCR is missing. What is an OCR and where can I get one?


Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR. It is the mechanical or electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text. In simple terms means your "scanner software" for your scanner device may be corrupted if the "OCR" is missing due to several reasons eg. fFles changes due to installations of software, Malware, Spwares or virus on you PC, etc....

Try uninstalling & reinstalling the Device setup i.e. "Drivers & Software" from the CD/DVD that comes with your Device.

Hope it helps.

Can the canoscan lide 70 scan documents to work so they can be edited? Is so how


Yes, but you have to use a special program called an "OCR" (Optical Character Recognizer) which will "read" the document from the scan. A scanner only produces a picture of a document, and it requries special software to "read" that image and make it editable.
The LIDE 70 comes with OMNIPAGE SE (special edition) which will work for simple documents. For more complex documents, you may need to buy the full edition of OMNIPAGE or another OCR package like FineReader. It is also built in fto software like OneNote and Evernote.

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.
