I need the OCR software for the printer. Windows XP version.


After scanning the text files and saving them as tiff or jpg image files you use OCR programs to convert these files to text files.
There are commercial OCR and freeware OCR programs available.
Check out these WEB sites for free OCR programs.

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've lost my set up cd and although the printer and copyer work I cannot scan a document onto the computer.


Scanning a document to your computer may require the Lexmark OCR scan software which is only available in the installation disk. Try to contact Lexmark technical support to request for the installation disk. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

Canon printer MP470: I have never been able to use the OCR. Can you tell me how to click, click, click to do OCR? I go to MP Navigator/ One Click/ OCR/ then it says specify program where scanned...


Dear Tom,

No problem, you're a mere 17 steps away from creating a high-quality document using Canon's cutting-edge OCR software!

1. Load doc onto platen.

2. Press "SCAN" button.

3. Make sure "DOCUMENT" bar is yellow and press "OK" button.

4. Make sure "SCAN TO PC" button is yellow and press "OK" button.

5. Press "BLACK" button (w/ white diamond on it) located under the word "START" (might take a couple of tries as this button tends to stick a little.)

6. On computer screen, find image of doc that was just scanned and select it by clicking on little check box under image so a check appears. MAKE SURE NO OTHER DOCS ARE SELECTED AND/OR DE-SELECT THEM NOW.

7. On computer screen, find "double chevron" bar in lower left-hand corner and click on it.

8. Click on "EDIT/CONVERT."

9. Click on "CONVERT TO TEXT FILE."

10. This will bring up a new window. Click on the "blue arrow" with "1-2-3" next to it, located in upper left-hand corner of computer screen.

11. This will bring up a new window with three buttons to choose from. Click on the middle button, which says "PROCESS ALL UNRECOGNIZED PAGES"

12. This should start the OCR process and bring up a new window.

13. At this point, I just hit "CANCEL" and highlight & copy the OCR text by myself. (This will allow you to get around the "SPECIFY PROGRAM" program you referred to in your post.)

14. Then I open a new doc in Word (or whatever word processing program you use) and paste it directly into the new doc.

15. Then I save it into whatever folder I need to save it in.

16. Make sure to read through the doc and correct any OCR typos and/or "artifacts."

17. Save one more time to make sure you don't lose your work and you're done!

OPTIONAL 18th STEP: Open a beer and do a big bong hit -- you've earned it, soldier!
