Word won't come up using OCR from the productivity suite.
When I select OCR from the productivity suite menu, my 7170 scans the doc, I get the ''adding doc'' window & the FineReader 6.0 Sprint window, but it doesn't bring up Word to display the doc. Where's it going?

Its seems that your filels are saved under different format. In order to find out just give a search for documents created *.* indicating the date and time when you scanned it. It will show you the the file and you can know the extension also. Then you can open it with relevant software. In case you require further assistance just quote back.

If by hard-copy you mean copy the actual text direct to lets say microsoft word then you need to use the OCR (optical character recognition) facilities of the application you are using
In the case of MS office you would got to microsoft office tools.
select microsoft office tools from your programs menu. Then microsoft document imaging.
Now you would select scan new document from the file menu and then select black and white or another option suitable for the type of doc you are scanning. then hit the SCAN button then OK on the next box.(here you may get offered the same options again but in a different manner its just how office does it) again follow the on screen and hit scan.
When it is done it will put you back on the main document imaging page but there will be your document
Now select FILE then send text to word which will open word with the text in there.
Quality of capture and success in OCR varies but can be up to 99%
That was OCR
If on the other hand you just mean scan a page of text or a picture then the software that was installed for the scanner can do that for you or again you may use other application but the use of each will vary
Usually a scanner will be set to a default JPG picture format
Use the HP AIO director software to scan and follow the onscreen instructions that are there to guide you.
Or use Microsoft's PAINT if you are on XP. start PAINT then go to the file menu. select FILE and then select FROM SCANNER OR CAMERA
About here it may well offer you the HP scanning function. or show you a dialog to select if you have more than one capable device then select scan or preview if you just want to see how it will look. Scan will do just that and them open in paint to do with whatever you want
You can't. You could try loading the Adobe professional software, but I do not think it lets you edit PDF's
If the Doc contains words you can OCR (Optical Character Recognition) it (ie read it) edit it an dthen create a new PDF.
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!

To scan a document for editing purposes, you will need OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. OCR software is not included with your model.
OCR software interprets the scanned document for editing purposes. The Epson driver alone only scans documents as image files and is not capable of this interpretation.
Some reputable OCR software programs on the market are:
Omni Page Pro ABBYY FineReader Pro Presto! OCR 4.0
Please understand that Epson has NOT tested our products with these programs. They do not know if these programs are TWAIN compliant and will import directly from our scanners. I recommend that you contact these companies for full compatibility information if you are interested.
Use any OCR software and it will take care of converting the scanned image into .DOC file or .PDF file. Some OCR softwares require a minimum dpi output, standard being 300 dpi. Ensure that the image is clean and 'straight', deskew if skewed.
