    I installed "scan to Office" from ABBYY
    very close to solving problem.
    I move problems to work, but when child starts to type, the answers move. and also text can be moved also.
    someone told me I need it sent as template so only answers could be type in.
    Thanks for all help

Instead of scanning original form, that is more complicate, you can design a new empty template form on Office, using Infopath, Word, Publisher, Excel , or Powerpoint.

 You will need (OCR) software. What this does is convert the scanned document into text that can be imported into a word processor.......
The link for OCR is :)

Hi,
You could try scanning it into MS Word as a picture then setting it into the background then you have 2 layers so u can type over the scanned in questions without deleting/moving anything.
Let me know... Matt

Hi, the easiest way to do is: Scan the question papers as pictures.
Insert the pictures into Microsoft Word document.
Create template fields at the places where the answer has to be entered. You son can fill it up and print the document.

Hi and welcome to Fixya,

Two ways to do this:

  • email - the short way, teacher just emails the questions, your son replies the email with his answers and mail it back (easiest);
  • if questions are already printed/hard copy - run your scanner, scan " list of questions on single sheets of paper" and save the scan image as a *.jpg file, open your OCR program, open/load, process then convert the *.jpg (image file) to actual characters and copy/paste to Notepad or MS Word. This applies to your current concern but would involve your assistance, several steps and honestly, the OCR will not be 100% accurate in copying/converting the scanned image into characters.
Perhaps you can suggest the email method to your son's teacher the next time around.

Pls postback updates. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa

Hi1
I think that what you need is to scan some text pages so you computer can recognize the text and modify them in a processor like microsoft word.

Am I right?

If so then I recomend a software named Abby Fine Reader

You can find and buy here.

    Hi!

    Ok I think that what you need in that case is a way to made a form so your child can only fill the fields.

    In that case I think your best solution is to use Adobe Acrobat. No Acrobat Reader

    With Adobe Acrobat you can create forms so your child can only modify the fields.

    Thanks!

Hello,i have this type of printer :samsung scx-4623f.the question is if i can scan without toner cartridge?the toner is empty and i want to use only the scaner,is possible?


Hi there!
It should work, most multifunction works even with no toner in it, just make sure that the scan function and scan driver is installed. You can scan using (for windows XP) Scanners & Camera Wizard. Start>All Programs>Accessories>Scanners & Camera WIzard. for windows VISTA & 7 Click on Start type in WIAACMGR on the start search box and click on it. You can also use Windows fax & scan for windows 7
.Hope this helps. Please rate if this works Thanks!

Cannot get my Canon MX700 to Scan. Also did not get a Guide.


You need to install scaning software that came with the printer to scan and save the file to your PC,Out going faxes should not be an issue if you can copy.Once you install the software tell the program where you want it to save the file in ex: My Documents.During set up you can do this (you can change anytime as well as dpi resolution).Windows has built in scaner set up. Go to start, control Panel, Cameras,scaners.Good Luck.

SCANNER SAYING NO USER ID


This means that you have not set up any users in the address book in the printer.

Copy is simple, it will scan the document and print out a copy of the scanned image.

Scan however, is trying to make and store an image file of the scan, but it needs to know WHERE you want to scan it to. The printer does not know where to send the stored image unless you create a storage location for it. This is done with the address book that is stored on the printer.

The material below is how to set up the scanner settings of the printer.

Printer Settings Utility Using the Printer Settings Utility window, you can set up the fax system data options, and create and edit Phonebook entries from your computer. You can also configure the destination launches when you access Scan and then PC.
When you install the Dell software, the Printer Settings Utility is automatically installed.
For information about installing the software, see "Installing Software in Windows".
To open the Printer Settings Utility:
  1. Click Start software25.jpg Programs software25.jpg DELL software25.jpg DELL Printers software25.jpg DELL Laser MFP 1815 software25.jpg Printer Settings Utility.
The Printer Settings Utility window opens.

  1. The Printer Settings Utility window provides several features; Directory (Phone Book, Address Book), Fax Setting (Fax Cover Sheet), and Scan (Destination, Resolution, Scan Color, Show Preview).
The Scan Section The Destination Section To configure the operator panel display scan destination list that appears when you access Scan and then PC, click Destination and the Setting button. Using the destination list, you can select a software program that an image can be scanned to.

Then in solution center click on scan picture or Scan Document the in the next window where you see (Where do you want to send the scanned images) Click on the drop down and select EMAIL after it has scanned and you click on accept it should open the outlook window on its own where you can put the recepients name and send.

But if in case your outlook is not configured then try the bellow link to configure outlook:
http://www.hostmysite.com/support/email/outlook/

You can also send email from the printer but to enter email address you will need the computer to manully enter email address after it opens outlook window

Getting error when trying to fax or scan


The L7580 is not meant to be set up as a scanning device on a network. This unit can only function properly as a USB connected device to have all the features work. Also, for the software to install with out problems, all other All in One software fro previous HP printers need to be removed. Once we did that and did clean install using USB only then did it work.
