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.

What is an ORC?


ORC is life form in the Lord of The Rings. What you want is OCR which stands for Optical Character Recognition. It is the software that converts a scanned document into a string of characters that you can edit to correct OCR errors.
To be able to scan to a computer the computer and the printer must be connected through a USB port or be part of the same network.
When you press the scan button, the printer tries to communicate with the computer and launch the scanning software installed on the computer.
Install the software that shipped with your printer, connect the computer and the printer. If everything is correctly connected and installed, the scanning software will open to receive the scanned document.

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.

How can i edit a scanned document on the lexmark 5650es?


Hi. You will need the OCR software installed in your computer. It is only available in the installation cd that came with your printer. The software is not available for download, even from the Lexmark website. If you have installed the scan software already, just open up the Lexmark Productivity Studio(for Windows) or All-in-One Center (for Macintosh)and choose Scan to Edit or Scan using OCR so that you can edit your scanned document. Hope this helps. Good luck!

How can i use ocr on lexmard 5650


If it didn't come with any OCR software you can find some free OCR software by Googling free OCR. After you have the software installed, it's usually a case of browsing to the scanned image via the software and telling the application to convert the image into a Word document. Some applications have the ability convert to PDF as well. If you prefer a PDF document but your OCR application doesn't support that option, then download some free "print to PDF" software. Typically with this type of software you will not be able to edit a PDF like you will a Word document. Hope I was able to FixYa, please remember to rate my solution. Thanks.
