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?

My Canoscan 4200F has no OCR software. How do I get it?


OCR software is usually a third-party program. Sometimes it is available on the original driver CD but it isn't included in the downloaded driver software. In the case of the CanoScan 4200F, the CD included the OmniPage SE OCR program. The SE indicates a Special Edition only bundled with the scanner and was only available for the OS versions that had been released when the scanner was first available. If you have the original CD (for Win98-XP), try to install the program using the Custom install option. (Check your current OS version. A 32-bit OS is more likely to support the OmniPage SE. With Windows Vista and 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System to determine the version. x64 indicates a 64-bit OS. ) If your current computer doesn't have an optical drive, use an external optical drive to install the program.

If you do not have the CD or your OS is incompatible with the Omnipage version on the CD, you will need to either purchase OmnuPage ($99 with a rebate from many vendors), AbbySoft's OCR program or one of the other OCR programs. SimpleOCR is free for personal use, http://www.simpleocr.com/Info.asp . The biggest problem with the free OCR programs is that they do not handle documents with columns properly.

I wish that I had better news for you.

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.

Can the canoscan lide 70 scan documents to work so they can be edited? Is so how


Yes, but you have to use a special program called an "OCR" (Optical Character Recognizer) which will "read" the document from the scan. A scanner only produces a picture of a document, and it requries special software to "read" that image and make it editable.
The LIDE 70 comes with OMNIPAGE SE (special edition) which will work for simple documents. For more complex documents, you may need to buy the full edition of OMNIPAGE or another OCR package like FineReader. It is also built in fto software like OneNote and Evernote.

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 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

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
