Re: I need to scan a document and save as a word doc.
As long as you just 'scan' - using the scanner only then its driver will open the program that came with it. To save it to either a MS document imaging, Word, Powerpoint, Clip Organizer, another photo program, etc, these have to be opened and you do it from any of these.
Your web building program probbly have this function too.

When you scan a photo or document, the computer will need to save the new document somewhere on the system. You should determine (before the scanning process) where that document is being saved and what name it is being given.
sounds like you need open office www.openoffice.org. it opens all microsofts docs and it's free. if you're going to use this to create documents then make sure you save them as microsoft documents. you can save as many different formats so this is a very versatile office suite.
You are going to want to find any OCR software that works for your printer. OCR is 'Optical Character Recognition'. It will take the scan and convert it into a text document, which is either already compatible for MS Word, or easily converted itself.
Hello my friend,you mean to scan a photo and save it on your folder? If yes
You run the application MP Navigator from your dekstop (or from Start, point to (All) Programs,
Canon Utilities, then MP Navigator EX
1.0. Then click MP Navigator EX 1.0.)
When the one-click mode screen has opened, click the Switch Mode button to switch to the navigation mode screen
Point to Scan/Import and click Photos/Documents (Platen).
Place the document face-down on the platen, and select Document
Click Specify... and set the preferences as required.
Click Scan and it should start scanning When scanning is completed, the Scan Complete dialog box opens. Select Scan or Exit. Select Scan to scan the next document, or select Exit to end. When scanning is completed, the scanned image
appears in the Thumbnail List area.
Edit the scanned image as required.
Click Save or Save as PDF file.If you choose just Save and box will appear to specify the destination folder, file name and file type(usually images are .jpeg .jpg ;) ).
You will need to use Optical Character Recognition software such as Abbyy Fine Reader. Most scanners are supplied with software to allow this. You have to use the OCR software and then save or export to word.
If you do not have any OCR software then free software can be downloaded from www.simpleocr.com
I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.
No problem, you're a mere 17 steps away from creating a high-quality document using Canon's cutting-edge OCR software!
1. Load doc onto platen.
2. Press "SCAN" button.
3. Make sure "DOCUMENT" bar is yellow and press "OK" button.
4. Make sure "SCAN TO PC" button is yellow and press "OK" button.
5. Press "BLACK" button (w/ white diamond on it) located under the word "START" (might take a couple of tries as this button tends to stick a little.)
6. On computer screen, find image of doc that was just scanned and select it by clicking on little check box under image so a check appears. MAKE SURE NO OTHER DOCS ARE SELECTED AND/OR DE-SELECT THEM NOW.
7. On computer screen, find "double chevron" bar in lower left-hand corner and click on it.
8. Click on "EDIT/CONVERT."
9. Click on "CONVERT TO TEXT FILE."
10. This will bring up a new window. Click on the "blue arrow" with "1-2-3" next to it, located in upper left-hand corner of computer screen.
11. This will bring up a new window with three buttons to choose from. Click on the middle button, which says "PROCESS ALL UNRECOGNIZED PAGES"
12. This should start the OCR process and bring up a new window.
13. At this point, I just hit "CANCEL" and highlight & copy the OCR text by myself. (This will allow you to get around the "SPECIFY PROGRAM" program you referred to in your post.)
14. Then I open a new doc in Word (or whatever word processing program you use) and paste it directly into the new doc.
15. Then I save it into whatever folder I need to save it in.
16. Make sure to read through the doc and correct any OCR typos and/or "artifacts."
17. Save one more time to make sure you don't lose your work and you're done!
