Question about Kyocera CS-2550 Black and White Copier

Kyocera 2550 Scans but how do I OCR?

I can scan just fine, but my output is not OCR and therefore not searchable. I thought this machine could do OCR? Thanks for the the help.

    We set the machine up to OCR, but the PDFs are not coming out searchable.

You can find documentation form Kyocera Printers here, though it barely mentions anything about their OCR feature:
http://usa.kyoceramita.com/americas/jsp/Kyocera/home.jsp

The OCR feature is only an image quality setting, producing a more black and white high contrast image rather than a grey scale image.

I'm using our Kyoceras to email the images to a server where "send mail" processes the image and runs OCRopus, an open source Google funded OCR project, to read information from the scan.

I'm finding there are many Virtual ReScan solutions, like Kyocera's OCR feature, VRS software produces OCR optimized images, though I haven't found an open source VRS project.

Why not just get a desktop application for professional OCR? That is always the best choice if you have many documents to process. There are many good applications, here is a good comparison chart: http://www.ocrworld.com/software/5-in-depth/149-top-ocr-software.html

I am trying to scan a multiple page document into a single pdf document on my HP C7280 but it scans each page to individual images. Any suggestions?


In Adobe Acrobat:-
From 'File' select 'Create PDF', 'from Scanner'.
Scan the first page and the program will ask of you for 'Next' or 'Done'.
Select 'Next' until you have scanned the last page, then select 'Done'.
You can also make the document searchable by carrying out an OCR on it under 'Documents', 'Recognise text under OCR', 'Start'.

Bizhub 250 Scan to searchable pdf


This copier scans as an image. The contents of this file are not searchable. The output type (as default) can be set by logging into the web interface of the machine. As for one- touches that are allready setup as tif, you would need to edit the one touch parameters to set the device to PDF. (image only)

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.

OCR on Ricoh all in one


you need to have the default scan output set to a .tif file, and then you would need an OCR software package to read the searchable file.
