Omnipage 16 OCR problems

Originally the software worked (about 4 times) then it showed a warning which basically said that there was an application problem. I have installed then uninstalled the software several times, but every time the 'load up'
works fine until I actually attempt to scan some text. At that point everything stops and I get the above warning notice.
As a silver surfer I 'm beginning to think that I cannot grasp what to do any more, but the OCR product is becoming a more essential tool in my life style.
The printer/scanner is an Epson RX640 and therefore does not contain it's own OCR tools.
Any help or advice would be gratefully received.

    Can I have a link to download the patched kernelapi.dll for OmniPage 16 ?? Thank you.
    Program NEVER starts....

    Please post the file or a link to it. Scansoft is now nuance, and they seem to have skipped this issue altogether. they say run the update inside the program. problem is, you cannot run the update because you cannot get into the program to do it.

Hmm..this may be more an operating system issue, than a printer issue. can you relay your computer make and model, and the version of your operating system?

Can this device scan to a pdf format?


This printer originally came with ScanSoft®, PaperPort®, and OmniPage® OCR software for Windows® and Presto!® PageManager® software for Macintosh® environments.You'll need to check these software packages to see if they will save the scanned image as a pdf file.

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.

I want to scan a paper and i want to save it as word so that i modify it. How can i do it?


It depends on if you have the full software installed. The MP160 documentation indicates it came wth ScanSoft OmniPage SE. Open MP Navigator and choose this program, you can output the scan as a text file. If you did a custom install, you may or may not have installed the program. If you omitted the program, do a new custom install.
OmniPage is an OCR program and will output to a number of formats (you will choose File, Save as) after scanning. Word can import RTF and most other choices as well as .doc files.

If you don't have the software disc, the software can be obtained from this URL:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=13368

Alternatively, there is a free OCR program (simpleOCR.com) that will do the same thing. However it doesn't handle text in columns (newspaper or magazines) very well.

I hope this helps.

How to scan and edit text document


You must use an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program

Run the "ScanSoft OmniPage" software that came with your printer.
Load the document into the scanner and "acquire" the document through OmniPage.
The pictures will not show up and the text may not be 100% accurate.
Run the resulting document into your wordprocessor (MS Word? or Works?), and run spellcheck.

Why does my scanner completely change the spelling of some words? It means I have to read the whole lot through and correct. Not good enough


You might need to higher the resolution at which your scanner runs the document. The word detection might also not be sensitive enough for your tastes so you would have to tweak that around. We can be more helpful if you detail the scanner type and program being used.

Ocr software


If you have lost the cd you can order another one from brother support (expensive!)

Have a look at eBay. Buy a defective mfc. Make sure that the cd is part of the offer.

If you want to use ocr only go buy omnipage software (scansoft). paperport includes a light version of the omnipage engine
