Great little printer (X6570) but .... the scan/ocr tries to display results in Microsoft Word (which I do not have) and I can not find where to instruct the software to open the results in either Notepad or MS Works or MS WordPad. Can you please tell me how I can get the results from teh ABBYY OCR program witout having to buy MS Word? Thanks

I have a Dell 924 aio want to scan to "microsoft word" (default is Microsoft paint) i need an "ocr" disk ?? can you help so I can scan to Microsoft word thank you. brian

OCR stands for "optical character recognition." It is the software your scanner uses to convert a scanned image into a text file. In order to scan into Word or Notepad or any other program where you can edit text, you will need OCR software.

If your Dell 924 can use OCR, this software should be included on the CD that came with your printer. Insert the CD and run Setup or try to find a folder labeled OCR. If you can't find any OCR files on your installation disk then check the Dell website:

I want to install the OCR (scan as text) software for my Lexmark X1270. It worked on my old computer, but on my new one it tells me to use my CD, which I don't have any more. I've tried re-installing the...

Without CD you can't install OCR or Optical character recognition software because OCR function is not installed in scanner but in computer. Usually when you buy new scanner you get CD or DVD with drivers and some lite version of OCR and some other programs for graphic editing.

X5495 - OCR Program Missing.

Do you have MS Office 2003 or 2007? If so, there is a Microsoft Document Imaging tool that you can use to scan text documents. You can also search for free OCR tools you can use for the same purpose.

Scanning into Microsoft word format

To scan a document and end up with something you can edit in MS Word (for example) you need OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. OCR software is usually (but not always) bundled with the driver software on the cd accompanying the scanner.

It does not do a perfect job, it usually gets whole sentences wrong and spells words incorrectly, for example. Check your driver cd for a folder or install option with OCR in the title.

Hope this helps.

OCR application error with the Dell ALL in ONE

OCR is a software provided by Dell to convert a scanned document to editable text(word) document. If you scan without OCR software, printer will scan it as a Picture and you can not edit it.

Now here is your answer.
When you install Printer CD, it also install OCR software (Abbyy Fine reader) along with it.
You might have uninstalled the printer drivers and reinstalled them by downloading it from Dell support site.
I must tell you that Downloaded drivers from Dell site DOES NOT contain OCR software.

1. You can download free trial version(15 days) from
Click here to download

2. If any of your friend or relative have printer listed below then you can use the same CD to install the OCR software.
List: Dell 924, Dell 926, Dell 928, Dell 944, Dell 946, Dell 948, Dell 964, Dell 966, Dell 968.

location on Disc:

3. You can scan using MS Paint.
Click on Start > All Programms > Acccessories > Paint
Click on "File" on Top left corner.
Click on "From scanners and cameras"
Click on "Scan"

It should be able to scan.

4. If you want to use Dell All In One Center.
You can disable OCR option for scanning and it will scan as an image.

Open Dell All in one center.
Click on Advanced scan options Under scan,
Uncheck "Use OCR software".
Click OK and try to scan again using Dell All In One center or using the printer operator panel.

Please revert for any further assistance.
