Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I want to scan an old e-mail to my computer and then be able to edit the contents. How do I do this? It will scan it, but not allow me to do the editing or else it scans and looks like a foreign language document. Is the HP Photosmart C5180 capable of doing this? If not, what do you suggest short of retyping the whole document?
HP Solution center software installed for your printer model has OCR feature to edit the scanned text image, but its not guaranteed.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) programs cannot reproduce a document with 100% accuracy every time. Some manual correction of the page is necessary.The following information might help increase the accuracy of the OCR.
1.You must click Scan Document from the HP Solution Center to begin the scan for the OCR to work.
2.On the Scan Document Button window, select a compatible program in the Scan to drop-down. The perform OCR setting then appears to the right.
3.On the Scan Document button Window, select the Scan Document Settings button.
4.Make sure at least 300 ppi is selected.
5.Remove the setting from Flowed Text in the Scan Settings window. If it is not already selected, select it now.This option will work correctly only in word processing programs capable of accepting this type of output. Microsoft WordPad, for example, will not accept this type of output.
6.Repeat Step 5 with the Retain page formatting setting.
Note: If the above solution didnt work, then you have to buy third party OCR software.
Thanks & Regards
