OCR Application error

Everything used to work fine. For some reason now I try to scan a document to Word or notepad or anything and it gives me some random error message about ocr application codes or something. I haven't changed anything with my settings or programs and I'm getting ready to take a baseball bat to this thing...I can only scan documents as jpegs and that's really annoying. Any help would be appreciated!

How do i scan a document to notepad from c5580 hp printer


Scanned documents are typically transferred as images and therefore cannot be opened in notepad. You can try looking into an OCR program that will read the text in the image and turn it into an editable text file which should then open in notepad. There are a few "freeware" programs out there but beware of trojans and malware that may come with them. The old driver for that printer used to come with OCR ability but it is not available on the new software version HP has on their support site. You can try searching for version 11 of the driver but you may not be able to find it and make it work.

How do I use my x5495 to scan a resume and then to edit it with my Dell XP computer?


You'll need to scan the document with an OCR software package (Optical character recognition) that will recognize the letters themselves and transmit them to word processing application, such as Word for Windows. Most scanner packages come with some form of OCR utility, so check your installed software. You may already be set up!
Best of luck, William

I can't scan on my lexmark printer model x5650. When I scan a document it gives me the message " Install the OCR from the OCR folder". I can't find the OCR folder in my computer. What should I do".


The Lexmark OCR scan software is available in the installation disk that came with the printer. You can explore the installation disk and look for the Abby setup application in the OCR folder (for Windows). For Mac OS, right-click on the Install icon and choose Show Package Contents. Open Contents folder > open Package folder and manually install the Abby Finereader application.
However, if you don't have the installation disk, contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

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.

How do you take a scanned article and transfor it to adobe reader 9 to alter document? I need to change the format i guess so it would register the material.


If you are working with a scanned document (TIFF, GIFF, etc) you must use an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) application to translate the scanned text into editable text. An application such as Omnipage will do this.
If you want a less expensive/less feature rich application try some of the trial OCR applications on ZDNET downloads at

Seperates the pictures from the text when scanning


Stop scanning as an OCR. Scan as a PDF or photo and it will scan it exactly as it was on the scanbed.

When scanning for OCR OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION it is translating the text for notepad and saving the pictures at the end or in separate files.

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.

Solution:
1. You can download free trial version(15 days) from Abbyy.com
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:
D:\OCR\setup.exe

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.

Kyocera 2550 Scans but how do I OCR?


You can find documentation form Kyocera Printers here, though it barely mentions anything about their OCR feature:
http://usa.kyoceramita.com/americas/jsp/Kyocera/home.jsp

The OCR feature is only an image quality setting, producing a more black and white high contrast image rather than a grey scale image.

I'm using our Kyoceras to email the images to a server where "send mail" processes the image and runs OCRopus, an open source Google funded OCR project, to read information from the scan.

I'm finding there are many Virtual ReScan solutions, like Kyocera's OCR feature, VRS software produces OCR optimized images, though I haven't found an open source VRS project.
