If you have MS Office, you can use their document imaging and scanning tools to do the scanning and/or conversion. There are other freeware, shareware and commercial tools with this capability as well. Just google 'OCR software' to locate some or use www.downloads.com.

The lexmark x2650 doesn't have the OCR software in it. I try to scan a document and edit it but can't because no OCR software included


To scan documents for editing and saving as PDF file, you will need to install the Lexmark OCR scan software on your computer. The Lexmark scan software (no downloadable version) is only available on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.


To install the OCR scan software from the printer installation CD:

  1. Insert CD into the CD-ROM drive. If the installation screen open, click Cancel.
  2. Double-click on My Computer / Computer.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark XXXX CD and select Open.
  4. Double-click on OCR.
  5. Double-click on Setup.exe to install the OCR software. Your operating system will then determine the language in which it is installed.

I have a Lexmark all in one X1290. I want to scan and then edit the text on Word. I have re-installed the disk twice and keep getting a prompt saying that I need the ocr download that is on my disk. ...


You have to scan the text into an Optical Character Recognition program first, save recognised text into a format that your word processor can handle and then you can edit it. OCR packages include Ominpage, Text Bridge, Fine Reader and many more. There should have been a basic OCR package on your setup disc that you got with your Lexmark. You may even be able to download one off the net, check Twucows.

Lexmark X2500 driver is missing OCR software


Sometimes companies only support only the basic drivers. The OCR software is on the CD (s) that came with the printer. Suggestion. Try to order the original CD from Lexmark., or search Ebay for programs that have OCR capability. You can use OCR programs from other vendors as long as they are stand-a-lone programs. Just make sure you have the original disc so as not to infringe on copyright privileges.

Note: you can buy OCR programs. Check Ebay and Amazon. They are usually better that the programs that come on the OEM disk.

Cheers.
