You need to install the scan software(OCR software) in your computer. The scan software can only be installed using the installation cd. If you don't have it or you lost it, I suggest you contact Lexmark. They can send you one for free.

The lexmark x2650 doesn't have the OCR software in it. I try to scan a document and edit it but can't because no OCR software included


To scan documents for editing and saving as PDF file, you will need to install the Lexmark OCR scan software on your computer. The Lexmark scan software (no downloadable version) is only available on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.


To install the OCR scan software from the printer installation CD:

  1. Insert CD into the CD-ROM drive. If the installation screen open, click Cancel.
  2. Double-click on My Computer / Computer.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark XXXX CD and select Open.
  4. Double-click on OCR.
  5. Double-click on Setup.exe to install the OCR software. Your operating system will then determine the language in which it is installed.

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.

UNABLE TO MAKE CORRECTIONS TO DOCUMENT


Scanners put a graphic image on your computer that is a "picture" as far as the computer is concerned and therefore, you cannot edit text because it is seen as pixels and not characters. In order to make a scanned document editable, you'll need to use the OCR function in your software (Optical Character Recognition). This is assuming your printer came with OCR software, if not, you'll need to purchase an OCR software package in order to convert images into editable documents. You should be able to find such packages for less than $50.00. Check your documentation (and help files) and look for OCR in the index or search the help files for OCR to see if such software came with your printer software package.

My document won't give me ocr as an option for editable papers..will only scan as an image..


It's not the printer or scanner, it's the scanning software on your computer that enables OCR. Most free programs won't do OCR, You need something like the add-ons available with Adobe Acrobat.

I don't know how to scan a document, save it to my computer, work on it and save it again for future use. How do I do that?


You have to install some kind of OCR (optical character recognition) software.
Usualy you will have CD with one of those in the box of your printer, but if you
do not have it, then go to this webpage and download ptogram for OCR.

Basically, OCR program will scan your document, convert it to electronic document
(word, text...) which you can then edit, modify, save and print.

Here is the link to FREE OCR software:

Ocr scan for Bizhub C450


Hello,
according to what I read on the C450 biz hub, in order to do OCR you need to use the option that scans to SMB, that sends the scanned documents to your computer on the network. You can then process the documents on your computer with the OCR software program so you can edit the finished documents. I did not see anything that indicated the Bizhub had OCR software capabilities built into the unit. Regards, rcampsr

OCR


To scan a document for editing purposes, you will need OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. OCR software is not included with your model.
OCR software interprets the scanned document for editing purposes. The Epson driver alone only scans documents as image files and is not capable of this interpretation.
Some reputable OCR software programs on the market are:
Omni Page Pro
ABBYY FineReader Pro
Presto! OCR 4.0
Please understand that Epson has NOT tested our products with these programs. They do not know if these programs are TWAIN compliant and will import directly from our scanners. I recommend that you contact these companies for full compatibility information if you are interested.
