My Canoscan 4200F has no OCR software. How do I get it?


OCR software is usually a third-party program. Sometimes it is available on the original driver CD but it isn't included in the downloaded driver software. In the case of the CanoScan 4200F, the CD included the OmniPage SE OCR program. The SE indicates a Special Edition only bundled with the scanner and was only available for the OS versions that had been released when the scanner was first available. If you have the original CD (for Win98-XP), try to install the program using the Custom install option. (Check your current OS version. A 32-bit OS is more likely to support the OmniPage SE. With Windows Vista and 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System to determine the version. x64 indicates a 64-bit OS. ) If your current computer doesn't have an optical drive, use an external optical drive to install the program.

If you do not have the CD or your OS is incompatible with the Omnipage version on the CD, you will need to either purchase OmnuPage ($99 with a rebate from many vendors), AbbySoft's OCR program or one of the other OCR programs. SimpleOCR is free for personal use, http://www.simpleocr.com/Info.asp . The biggest problem with the free OCR programs is that they do not handle documents with columns properly.

I wish that I had better news for you.

OCR Software for windows 7


The OCR software (ABBYY Fine Reader) included on the CD-ROM was a special edition. It wasn't meant to be upgraded to a new computer with a new OS. It might work on a Win7 32-bit OS with the compatibility mode (not a given). You could try installing it in the compatibility mode - right click on the installer and choose Properties then the Compatibility tab and set for XP. Then right click on the installer again and choose Run As Administrator.

Workarounds are available. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can install a virtual computer running XP for free. Download and install 2 programs/packages - Microsoft's Virtual PC and the XP mode. Install the ABBYY Fine Reader inside this "computer" and run the OCR on that machine. You may need to transfer files to external media (Optical disc or external drive) to share them between the "machines". Other methods include: keeping your old computer with XP or other compatible OS with the software and transferring files across the network (wired, wireless or sneaker-net), running a dual boot computer (with a paid licensed version of XP on the second boot partition) or running any virtual PC program (Parallels, Virtual PC, etc) with a licensed copy of XP.

The only free OCR program that I know of is SimpleOCR, http://www.simpleocr.com/ . As of this morning, the site does not list that the software is Win7 compatible. This software is limited and does not handle pages with columns of text well. (It eliminates the columns and runs straight across.)

There are several paid OCR packages that run under Windows 7. OmniPage 17 by Nuance works well, http://www.nuance.com/for-individuals/by-product/omnipage/index.htm . It costs $150. ABBYY Fine Reader also works but that is more expensive. There is the cheaper ABBY Fine Reader 9.0 Express Edition but it is currently listed as working with Windows Vista, not Win7. It's $50. You could try it.

If your documents aren't items you wish to protect, try one of the online OCR programs. An example is: www.onlineocr.net/ . There are a number of others listed by Google. I haven't tried any of these. I have a computer with OmniPage in my network.

I hope this helps.

I want buy brother printer with OCR software compatible with windows 7 32 bit


rdx_sydney --

I wouldn't mind having one of these either ... According to the manual.

If your document is text, you can have it converted by ScanSoft® OmniPage® OCR to an editable text file and
then have the result displayed in your word processing application for viewing and editing.

I see that this model is available in Australia, but not the United States -- they may be findable in other places, too.

Suggest that you go to Brother's website. and have a look around

I have hp color printer with scanner. I need to scan document and generate pdf document. Dont find ocr software any help?


If you do not have the install CD that came with third-party software (or you have a OS that is not compatible with that software), you will need to get a OCR program. SimpleOCR (http://www.simpleocr.com/Download.asp ) is free but doesn't handle pages with columns well. (It merges across the column breaks instead separating the paragraphs.) It also doesn't handle handwritten text. This software outputs to a file for a Word Processor (such as Microsoft Office's Word). Most word processors either come with a PDF converter or have one available as an add-on. The commercial OCR software packages will include the save as a PDF function and do not have the limitations of SimpleOCR; although they also default initially to a format for Word Processing (to correct any mistakes). (I have used OmniPage at times personally.)

With most all-in-ones, if you have the full software installed, there will be an option for saving as a PDF. (This is true even on the versions that weren't bundled with OCR software.) If you have a generic OS driver or the basic driver, this will usually not be available Take a look at the screens that come up if you start the scan from the computer. (There will be a place to adjust settings, including the resolution and the output type.) This won't be editable unless you go through the OCR software.

I hope this helps.

I want to scan a paper and i want to save it as word so that i modify it. How can i do it?


It depends on if you have the full software installed. The MP160 documentation indicates it came wth ScanSoft OmniPage SE. Open MP Navigator and choose this program, you can output the scan as a text file. If you did a custom install, you may or may not have installed the program. If you omitted the program, do a new custom install.
OmniPage is an OCR program and will output to a number of formats (you will choose File, Save as) after scanning. Word can import RTF and most other choices as well as .doc files.

If you don't have the software disc, the software can be obtained from this URL:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=13368

Alternatively, there is a free OCR program (simpleOCR.com) that will do the same thing. However it doesn't handle text in columns (newspaper or magazines) very well.

I hope this helps.

Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience...


Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.
