Question about Lexmark X5495 All-in-One &USB Cable/Ink/Paper/Software InkJet Printer

X5495 - OCR Program Missing.

OCR Program Missing
An image-to-text (OCR) application is provided for you on your CD in the OCR folder.

When I tried to install my X5495 from CD i failed spectacularly. I ended up going to Lexmark's website and downloading drivers from there. It doesn't look as though the OCR bit installed.

Please help! Oh, can't find my cd now. As it was no use to install x5495 I probably 'filed it'.

Do you have MS Office 2003 or 2007? If so, there is a Microsoft Document Imaging tool that you can use to scan text documents. You can also search www.download.com for free OCR tools you can use for the same purpose.

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.

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]

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 I use my x5495 to scan a resume and then to edit it with my Dell XP computer?


You'll need to scan the document with an OCR software package (Optical character recognition) that will recognize the letters themselves and transmit them to word processing application, such as Word for Windows. Most scanner packages come with some form of OCR utility, so check your installed software. You may already be set up!
Best of luck, William

I have a Dell 924 aio want to scan to "microsoft word" (default is Microsoft paint) i need an "ocr" disk ?? can you help so I can scan to Microsoft word thank you. brian


OCR stands for "optical character recognition." It is the software your scanner uses to convert a scanned image into a text file. In order to scan into Word or Notepad or any other program where you can edit text, you will need OCR software.

If your Dell 924 can use OCR, this software should be included on the CD that came with your printer. Insert the CD and run Setup or try to find a folder labeled OCR. If you can't find any OCR files on your installation disk then check the Dell website:

I am trying to scan and edit a document but i get the message "Install the OCR directory from your CD to be able to do this. I have no CD for this. I have a Dell AIO 922 Printer


You must have OCR installed to OCR. It's OCR...optical character recognition. You can't edit an image. It must be transformed into text. That's what OCR program does.
Google for your printed/scanner and download the proper software and install it. Dell provides the software online for free, but will charge you if you order a CD.
