Scanning into OCR using a Vista PC

I got a new PC with Vista, my Brother MFC-420CN works beautifully except for scanning into OCR. I cannot find a OCR driver or download for Vista that resolves the problem. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

    I need OCR and it's not working on my mfc 440 cn. I can only get it to print one copy at a time too. Even though I punch in 4 copies. It only gives me one.

    The Control Center 2.0 (MFC420CN) has 4 options (Icons) to SCAN:
    1. Image
    2. OCR
    3. Email &
    4. File
    When I click on OCR, the following appears in the dialog box:

    "The feature is not available because there is no OCR software installed.
    Please install the OCR software first."

    Where can I DOWNLOAD this software from?

Try using the WindowsXP driver directly, click on 'continue anyway' and see if that works.

How to use the scan ( Brother mfc 420cn ). Thanks!


With printer turned ON, and connected either through a USB cabe or ethernet, open the Control Center CC3. Click the SCAN button on the CC3 widow to select SCAN to Image, Scan to OCR, scan to E-mail, or scan to file. If you have not configured these options yourself, you will find the scanned documents in the user's My Pictures/ CC3/SCAN folder.So with CC3 open, the document on the glass falt bed or in the ADF, select the type of scan and press the corresponding button. A small progress window opens, etc..

When scanning to ocr I get brccMCtl.exe has encountered .... and it shuts down. I can scan to email, file, and image. But Not to OCR. The Brother Control Center 3.00 is the problem.


I deleted all Brother programmes from by PC, cleaned the registry and used the Brother Uninstall programme first. (I restarted the PC after each deletion)
Then I reinstalled the latest Brother printer driver software without the PaperPort SE 11 programme.
Then I installed the Paperport programme separately.

It worked.

Thanks
