I have a problem after scanning, I cannot bring the document up in MS Word to edit. The document arrives on my computer screen but I can not edit it


You need OCR software installed in your PC

go to www.hp.com then type OCR application then download it in your pc

OCR Application File name: s.gif 23902_hpcom_OCR_120_003.exe [1/1, 54.84M]

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=oj-72836-2&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
Text Cannot Be Edited After It Is Scanned to a Word Processing Program
Issue After scanning into a word-processing program, the text in the original is not editable. Workaround The process of changing text from an image to editable text is called optical character recognition (OCR). Text should automatically be converted in the OCR process when the Send To destination is a word-processing program. If it does not, check the items in the following list:
  • Select Editable Text as the image type in Scan Settings . In Windows XP, this setting is automatically selected if Scan Document is selected in the Director program.
  • Scan at a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi) for correct OCR conversion. Check the default resolutions in the Scan Settings on the Resolution tab.
  • If portions of the scan are cut off, turn off the Auto Crop feature in the Scan Settings on the Scanning tab by clicking to clear the check mark.
  • Tables, text boxes, and spreadsheets might not be editable. The border around them makes the OCR program read them as images. Readiris OCR, which is included with the HP Officejet G and K series, can recognize these images. Instead of selecting the word-processing program in the Send To list, send the scan to Readiris. Use the Table Drawing tool on the right side of the window to change the type of image to a table, and then use the OCR. The text inside of the box should now be editable.
    NOTE: Handwritten messages might not be captured by the OCR process.

How do you scan a document to MS-Word?


You actually have 2 options.

First Option: (You can also see the instructions here.)

How to Turn a Scanned Document Into Microsoft Word Document:

1)Scan the page you want to convert into a Microsoft Word document.

4)Go to "Start->Programs->Microsoft Office Tools->Microsoft Office Document Imaging"
5)Go to "File->Open" and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.TIFF format.
6)Go to "Tools->Send Text to Word." You will get a prompt stating this process will take time, Click OK. This will take some time depending on your computer's speed (a minute or two at the most).

    Scan document into text


    Scanned documents are image documents and they need to be converted using an OCR program. The Optical Character Recognition program converts scanned image documents into a text file which you can open with a Word program and edit.
    You need OCR programs such as -
    OmniPage 17
    ReadSoft
    GOCR (freeware)
    Tesseract OCR (freeware)
    Microsoft Office Document Imaging (included in MicroSoft office Tools)

    UNABLE TO MAKE CORRECTIONS TO DOCUMENT


    Scanners put a graphic image on your computer that is a "picture" as far as the computer is concerned and therefore, you cannot edit text because it is seen as pixels and not characters. In order to make a scanned document editable, you'll need to use the OCR function in your software (Optical Character Recognition). This is assuming your printer came with OCR software, if not, you'll need to purchase an OCR software package in order to convert images into editable documents. You should be able to find such packages for less than $50.00. Check your documentation (and help files) and look for OCR in the index or search the help files for OCR to see if such software came with your printer software package.

    How do you get the Canon Pixma mp500 to scan?


    Hi there,

    Scanning images,
    About Scanning images
    You can scan images from the machine to a computer without printing them and save them in popular formats. Scanned data saved on your computer can be processed using image processing software. Furthermore, you can use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.

    * Before scanning
    Before scanning images, confirm the following :
    - Are the necessary software (MP Drivers and MP Navigator) installed ?
    If the software is not installed, install it.
    - Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass ?
    - Is the machine connected to a computer correclty.
    Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

    Scanning Methods.

    A) Scanning Using the MP Navigator
    MP Navigator enables you to scan in documents loaded on the Platen Glass and view images saved on your computer or on a memory card. Scanned documents can be previewed and easily printed and edited according to your needs.
    You can use the supplied application softwares to edit or print the document you have scanned.

    Windows : Double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon on your desktop to launch MP Navigator.
    Mac : Select [Applications] from the [Go] menu, then double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon to launch MP Navigator.

    You can launch the following application software from the MP Navigator.
    * Easy-PhotoPrint (Photo Printing)
    * ArcSoft PhotoStudio (Photo image editing)
    * ScanSoft OmniPage SE ( Converting scanned document to text)
    - This application software may not be supplied with teis machine in some country.

    Note : If you did a [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application softwares from MP Navigator, do a [Custom Install] once again to install them.
    For detailed operations of the MP Navigator, refer to the Scan Guide.


    B) Scanning Using the Operation Panel of the Machine
    You can scan documents to your computer by using the Operation Panel.
    Important : Do not insert or remove USB cables when scanning images with the machine connected to a computer, or when the computer is at sleep or standby mode.
    *If you are using Windows XP
    The program selection screen is displyed the first time you press [Color] or [Black] on the machine.. Specify the [MP Navigator 2.0] as the application software to use, check [Always use this program for this action], then click [OK]. From the next time, MP Navigator is automatically started.

    *When using Mac OS X
    For the machine to start scanning when [Color] or [Black] is pressed, you need to set MP Navigator as the starting application software in Image Capture under [Applications] of Mac OS X.

    1) Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the machine.
    2) Load the documents on the Platen Glass.
    3) Select the scan option.
    a) Press [Scan].
    The scan operation selection screen is displayed.
    b) Use Up or Down arrows to select the scan operation, then press [OK].
    Scan standby screen is displayed.
    Save to PC : The document is scanned and saved.
    Save as PDF file : The document is scanned and stored as a PDF file.
    Attach to E-Mail : The document is scanned, and the image is attached to an e-mai using the e-mail application software.
    OPen with application : The document is scanned and displayed on the registered application software.

    4) Press [Color] or [Black].
    The document is scanned. The settings configured from MP Navigator apply when scanning.
    Important : If with some types of original the position and size of the image is not scanned in correctly, please refer to the "Selecting the Behaviour of the Operation Panel with Mp Navigator " in the Scan Guide (on-screen manual). and change the MP Navigator [Document Type] and [Document Size]] to match those of the original being scanned.
    Note : The operation to be performed after scanning the document depends on the scan operation setting you have selected in step 3. For details on how to modify the operation settings, refer tp the Scan Guide on-screen menual.

    C) Scanning from an Application Software
    You can scan an image from TWAIN-or- WIA (Windows XP only) complaint application software and handle the scanned image in the application software. For detailed operations, refer to the Scan Guide (on-screen manual).

    Hope this helps.
    Please rate my response.

    Canon MultiPASS F50 won't copy but will scan


    Does the copy function work if you place the document to be copied on the platen (open the cover and lay it on the glass)? If so, check the area to the left of the platen. There should be a strip of glass with a clear plastic cover over it. This area is used for scanning when feeding paper through the automatic document feeder (ADF) from the top. This area must be clean. If this area is clean and clear, it's possible that the scanner element (below the glass) is no longer going all the way to the left when using the ADF. This would be a problem that would require servicing.

    OCR Instructions ??


    there are two places where this printer can store ocr files . the cache within the printer might be full , do empty old documents from the printer , and secondly it saves directly to your PC , a file or a folder has to be specified from the software , for it to dump the scanned file , In short you should remove your old documents and make space for new ones
