The only way you can install the Lexmark scan software (OCR) is by using the installation cd. It's not available for download on the internet. If your computer is not recognizing the installation cd, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to request for that. They can send you one for free. Hope this helps.

Can I download a driver to scan docs to rft on HP Deskjet 2544 printer


To scan to Rich Text you will need to have a program that can conduct an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) conversion of your scanners output.

HP Deskjet 2544 All-in-One Printer does not come with OCR included. You can install the OCR using the below link:
1) Open below link and save the OCR software to downloads folder:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/printers/ocragent/hpcom_OCR_140_003.exe
2) Run the file after the download is complete.
3) If there's an error "This update does not support any of the HP device......", do not close the message. This is very important. You'll need to extract the OCR software from the temp install folder.
4) Open your temp folder (usually C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp)
5) Open 7z folder
6) Copy folder "ocr_web_pack" to downloads or desktop.
7) Now you can Click OK to close the error message.
8) Open "ocr_web_pack" folder which is copied to desktop and double click the "SETUP.EXE" file.
9) Follow the prompts to install the OCR software.

Enjoy!

Error says that ocr is not installed


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 hope this helps.

How to convert scanning documents to MS-words


You are going to want to find any OCR software that works for your printer. OCR is 'Optical Character Recognition'. It will take the scan and convert it into a text document, which is either already compatible for MS Word, or easily converted itself.

X7675 Aio Wl USB Adf 32/27PPM Ocr Dir Prt Pbridg Dplx All-In-One Printer: My lexmark x7675 can not download scan application...


No solution here - just confirmation. Mine say that it (the scanner) cannot save files to my hard drive, that it is full. That's far from true, but to a dumb accessory a locked target folder/directory will look like a full disk. Does anyone know where Lexmark parks it's temporary files? I've looked in all the usual places on my Mac, and can't find anything yet. (I have previously found a Brother parks it's initial scans, before you save them, deep in a normally inaccessible corner of the System folder.)

Email scanned docs


You don't. Scanners save everything as a Picture. Test is not text, it is a combination of thousands of dots that make up a picture. It takes an OCR and very complicated software to read text from a picture.

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one


I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.

I am not able to convert scans to PDF using the productivity studio. After the scan it asks to save individual or all doc's as one PDF file, selecting either, i asit to convert, button goes dim as if it is...


You have to insert the install CD, choose custom install, and install the OCR and FAX software. This conversion depends on the ABBYY conversion software and if you didn't install it you will get those symptoms. I had the same issue, installed those apps, and all was right with the world.

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

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.

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!
