By clicking the black down arrow on the right side of the button that now says, "OCR" it will give you a drop-down menu. The top entry is "SCAN TO". Select that, and you will be back to your original setting.

Scan a document into Word


Hello

Notepad uses the file extension ".txt"

You can open this file in Word and then choose "Save As" and change it to the Word format (.doc or .docx).

I would assume the scanning feature is using OCR (optical character recognition) and, after the scan, the default is to save it in a .txt format so it will open in almost any computer.

You can set your computer to use Word to open .TXT files automatically. You would still have to choose the "Save As" and change the format to Word before you can make meaningful editing changes (elaborate fonts, stationary, etc.) as .TXT files have only the most basic formatting available.

I am trying to scan documents. when the scan is complete it says that there isnt ocr program installed. i need to get this fixed quick quick


OCR is short for Optical Character Recognition. OCR programs are used for recognizing and telling the difference between text and images on scanned documents to help your computer decide what file format to save it in. Possible solution for this is to download the appropriate software and re-install it on your computer using the recommended settings.

I have a problem after scanning, I cannot bring the document up in MS Word to edit. The document arrives on my computer screen but I can not edit it


You need OCR software installed in your PC

go to www.hp.com then type OCR application then download it in your pc

OCR Application File name: s.gif 23902_hpcom_OCR_120_003.exe [1/1, 54.84M]

Text Cannot Be Edited After It Is Scanned to a Word Processing Program
Issue After scanning into a word-processing program, the text in the original is not editable. Workaround The process of changing text from an image to editable text is called optical character recognition (OCR). Text should automatically be converted in the OCR process when the Send To destination is a word-processing program. If it does not, check the items in the following list:
  • Select Editable Text as the image type in Scan Settings . In Windows XP, this setting is automatically selected if Scan Document is selected in the Director program.
  • Scan at a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi) for correct OCR conversion. Check the default resolutions in the Scan Settings on the Resolution tab.
  • If portions of the scan are cut off, turn off the Auto Crop feature in the Scan Settings on the Scanning tab by clicking to clear the check mark.
  • Tables, text boxes, and spreadsheets might not be editable. The border around them makes the OCR program read them as images. Readiris OCR, which is included with the HP Officejet G and K series, can recognize these images. Instead of selecting the word-processing program in the Send To list, send the scan to Readiris. Use the Table Drawing tool on the right side of the window to change the type of image to a table, and then use the OCR. The text inside of the box should now be editable.
    NOTE: Handwritten messages might not be captured by the OCR process.

After I scan text, I cannot put it into a Word document, edit, or anything. I have an Epson 2400. thanks I do not have the scanner directions.


In order to scan to word so a document is editable you need to use Optical Character Recognition Software (OCR). You can download free ocr software from www.simpleocr.com Use that software and then either export once scanned to Word or Save as a Word document in the OCR application.

CAN i SCAN A DOCUMENT TO MY PC


Yes you can, you must use OCR to do that, OCR means Optical Character Recognition, first you must scan the hard copy and save it as TIFF format and run through OCR reader, take note that convertion is not perfect, you still have to edit words that are not read correctly.

You can download OCR reader on this link: http://finereader.abbyy.com/?gclid=CK6C96aflZ4CFRgbawodiDZ2oQ

Hope this helps.

I don't know how to scan a document, save it to my computer, work on it and save it again for future use. How do I do that?


You have to install some kind of OCR (optical character recognition) software.
Usualy you will have CD with one of those in the box of your printer, but if you
do not have it, then go to this webpage and download ptogram for OCR.

Basically, OCR program will scan your document, convert it to electronic document
(word, text...) which you can then edit, modify, save and print.

Here is the link to FREE OCR software:

Good luck,

Scanning


Hi,

Did you tried with any OCR software to convert the Scanned imaged (jpeg) to Word Documen?.Always if you scan anything to an image, it will scan in JPEG format that will consume lot of memory.Scan with OCR(Optical Character Recognition) Software and that will Convert JPEG to word Document which will fix the problem.
The OCR software that i Recommend is ABBY Fine Reader.

Thanks
