Is it possible to re-scan or re-save the document you are working on at a higher resolution?

While 144 dpi is listed as the lowest possible resolution to scan OCR text, sometimes it is finicky at that level. Also, you might want to optimize for OCR, straightening and taking out the speckles and such.

Hope that helps and isn't too elementary to your issue.

I have a scanned PDF document that I want to highlight and previously when the text wasn't recongnized it would ask to convert. At one point I checked the "do not ask again" box and now I am...


Basically Acrobat comes with a feature called as OCR (Optical Character Recognition) which helps acrobat in recognizing the text being used in a particular scanned document.
Just for the information, Acrobat 7 used to come with OCR accuracy of approximately 85% which has increased to 95% accuracy in the latest version of Acrobat (Acrobat X)
Now, in Acrobat 7, what you need to do is try running the OCR again on this document by following the steps mentioned below:
  • Open the document in Acrobat 7
  • Go to Document menu at the top
  • Click OCR text Recognition option under that menu
  • Then Recognize Text using OCR under that
  • This will open recognize text dialog box
  • Make sure All Pages option is selected in the new dialog box
  • Then click the edit button available in the same dialog box
  • This should open recognize text setting dialog box
  • Select Clearscan option in PDF Output Style drop down
  • Click Ok and then Ok again which should start the OCR on the open document
  • After OCR successfully completes try highlighting the text and see if you can do it
If you are still unable to do it, I would suggest you to download the trial version of Acrobat X from adobe.com which is a fully functional version which you can use for 30 days. After downloading this trial try opening the same document there and try running the OCR again and perform the highlighting of text again in Acrobat X itself.
If it still does not work please reply back with the results of the above mentioned steps and we can try performing some other workarounds to make the text recognizable.

What driver or software is needed to install the HP2355 scanner?


You can't scan to word unless you have OCR software running. Word is for text and without OCR it is only a picture or image and not text. It's not cheap but you need to shop around for something like Adobe with OCR to convert to text.

Highlighting a graphic or scanned text in pdf file


If the text is editable you can use the TouchUp Text Tool.
For images use the TouchUp images tool.
Both are located in the Tools Pallet under Advanced Editing.

Doc chnages required


You can't.  You could try loading the Adobe professional software, but I do not think it lets you edit PDF's
If the Doc contains words you can OCR (Optical Character Recognition) it (ie read it) edit it an dthen create a new PDF.

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!

Use any OCR software and it will take care of converting the scanned image into .DOC file or .PDF file. Some OCR softwares require a minimum dpi output, standard being 300 dpi. Ensure that the image is clean and 'straight', deskew if skewed.
