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.

I have a Lexmark x5650. I'm on a mac, upgraded my os from Tiger to Snow Leopard. Now I can't scan OCR text. Could scan to word document before, and get editable text. That is not an option now


If you still have the Lexmark X5650 install disc that came with your printer, re-insert it to your computer hard drive and run the program. This will help repair the OCR scan software and possible corrupted files necessary for scanning documents.

My HP Deskjet F4280 all in one scans only to Photo Smart. I need to scan it to documents so I can send documents by email. How do I get it to scan to documents?


You need to install OCR by Iris software. This will allow you to scan and convert it to rich text file (.rtf) /editable text. Some HP AIO like HP c309a have free basic OCR software. you can download c309a full feature driver and software and just get the OCR software.

I have a Dell 924 aio want to scan to "microsoft word" (default is Microsoft paint) i need an "ocr" disk ?? can you help so I can scan to Microsoft word thank you. brian


OCR stands for "optical character recognition." It is the software your scanner uses to convert a scanned image into a text file. In order to scan into Word or Notepad or any other program where you can edit text, you will need OCR software.

If your Dell 924 can use OCR, this software should be included on the CD that came with your printer. Insert the CD and run Setup or try to find a folder labeled OCR. If you can't find any OCR files on your installation disk then check the Dell website:

Scanning document and editing in word


Hai,

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

How can I scan a documtent and save it in my word processor


A scan of a document is only a picture of the document. That is, it's the same as if you had just used a copying machine. It's not text that you can work with. You need to take that scanned image and feed it to an optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert it into text that you can use. Most scanners come bundled with OCR software when you buy them. You can also look on the internet for OCR programs.

Once you have OCR software installed, many scanners will automatically feed the scanned image to the OCR program when you scan a document. Be ready to do some extra work, though. While it's good, most OCR software is not 100% accurate. Depending on the font and formatting used in the original document, the program may decide on the wrong character when converting. You will also lose formatting (font sizes, types and so on), and end up with plain text. You'll need to put that in yourself when you paste the text into your Word document.

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.

Scanning


Hi,

Did you tried with any OCR software to convert the Scanned imaged (jpeg) to Word Documen?.Always if you scan anything to an image, it will scan in JPEG format that will consume lot of memory.Scan with OCR(Optical Character Recognition) Software and that will Convert JPEG to word Document which will fix the problem.
The OCR software that i Recommend is ABBY Fine Reader.

Thanks
