OCR is a software provided by Dell to convert a scanned document to editable text(word) document. If you scan without OCR software, printer will scan it as a Picture and you can not edit it.
Now here is your answer.
When you install Printer CD, it also install OCR software (Abbyy Fine reader) along with it.

This might not be the issue but I had a similar problem when I first got the printer. Open the top-( where the ink is loaded), look at the back on the right there is a small bus cable ( flat wire usually white) make sure it is pulled in all the way into the top. Be carefull as the prongs can break. This took care of my clicking clacking when the machine came on.

If it truely has an optical character reader(OCR) built into the scaner it would not provide the software for it since the software is rather a large program an cost in excess of $100 just by itself.
