You can use an OCR program on the scanned image to convert it to a Word document and then run a spell check to correct the mistakes.

I am trying to scan documents. when the scan is complete it says that there isnt ocr program installed. i need to get this fixed quick quick


OCR is short for Optical Character Recognition. OCR programs are used for recognizing and telling the difference between text and images on scanned documents to help your computer decide what file format to save it in. Possible solution for this is to download the appropriate software and re-install it on your computer using the recommended settings.

Hi


1. Double Click on HP director to start it up. Look for "HP Director" on your desktop (the screen in front of you). It is usually an icon that materializes after you install your printer. (It may look slightly different with different models.

2. Scan the document by clicking "Scan."

3. Select "Save to File." (You can set up a folder ahead of time so you know where to find the document or photos once they are scanned). Often times the computermag-glass_10x10.gif will create a default "scanned documents" folder and organize them by saving them on the date scanned.

4.Click scan and then wait for box to appear.

5.
The software will prompt you to save the file. Put it in the folder you created (you can see the path/folder). Give it a name you will remember.

6.
Then click "Save"to finalize it. The document should be in the folder that you designated.

Hope this helps

I cannot scan documents and edit them. I can only get my text as a picture. I have a MacBook Pro


Scanner in general do not recognize text; once a document is scanned, an OCR (Optical Recognition Software) must be used to recognize characters.

Some OCR software are bundled with scanners, and you aquire them from different download sites; I can help you if you are interested.

pls. vote for better service. Thanks

My hp psc will not scan an object everything else seems to work how do i fix it


Double Click on HP Solution Center icon to open. The HP icon will be on your desktop or in your start menu. It is the icon that materializes after you use the CD to install your HP scanner or multifunction printer. (It may appear slightly different depending on the model and type of HP scanner or printer).
Place the document or photo on the glass platen in the proper corner. There is an arrow that illustrates proper placement in HP scanners and printers.
Click the settings button on the bottom of the HP Solution center screen. It appears as a wrench. This will assist in setting up your scanner or all-in-one HP printer to scan at the touch of a button. Follow the on-screen prompts for photos and documents. Then, scan by clicking the Scan Picture or Scan Document button as appropriate.
Select the proper choice once you scan, such as save to file (specify where) or email (You also can set up a folder ahead of time so you know where to find the document or photos once they are scanned). Often times the computer will create a default my scans folder and organize them by saving them by date and month scan.
Click scan and then wait for box to appear. You will see the document or photo being saved and the blue bar will display progress in the HP screen.
Save the file if the HP software has not already done this for you. Put it in a folder you create and give it a name you will remember.
Then click "Save"to finalize it. The document should be in the folder that you designated.
Repeat the process for multiple pages. Keep the HP Solution Center screen open until your scans are finished.

How do i scan to my computer


As long as the printer/scanner is hooked up to the computer, you should be able to put the document on the glass face down, close the lid and press the scan button. The HP screen will pop up on the computer screen, don't mess with that, just let the document scan (it should show you the progress) and once it's done, it will ask you if you want to scan something else or be done. If your done, click done and then it will open up the HP window and show you what you scanned. To retrieve the scan, I always go to start, my documents, my scans and look for the current month and year, open that folder and then you have access to the document you just scanned. Hope this helps.

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.

How can I scan a documtent and save it in my word processor


A scan of a document is only a picture of the document. That is, it's the same as if you had just used a copying machine. It's not text that you can work with. You need to take that scanned image and feed it to an optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert it into text that you can use. Most scanners come bundled with OCR software when you buy them. You can also look on the internet for OCR programs.

Once you have OCR software installed, many scanners will automatically feed the scanned image to the OCR program when you scan a document. Be ready to do some extra work, though. While it's good, most OCR software is not 100% accurate. Depending on the font and formatting used in the original document, the program may decide on the wrong character when converting. You will also lose formatting (font sizes, types and so on), and end up with plain text. You'll need to put that in yourself when you paste the text into your Word document.

I have an HP Officejet 6500. I want to scan a document to a PDF, then upload it to a website. How do I do it? I scanned the document, but now I can't find the PDF.


(1.) Start / All Programs / HP / HP Viewer / Scan Document (icon is in left margin)
(2.) A small screen appears entitled "Select Source", and provides the "HP Officejet 6200 Series TWAIN" option. Highlight this then click "select".
(3.) I accept the default provided on the next screen (i.e., radio buttons for "Document" & "Scan for editable text"; "Scan to:" (drop box) "HP Document Viewer; check "Show Preview" box; then click "Scan".
(4.) After a brief pause, my printer scans, then the HP Document Viewer screen on the PC provides a small image of the scanned document and allows me to click the "accept" icon.
(5.) After "accepting" the scan into the HP Document Viewer, it takes a minute for it to appear in the "viewer". Notice that the "View Thumbnails" tab is highlighted at the top of this screen. Click the check-box next to the scanned item then click the "View Page" tab just to the right of the "View Thumbnails" tab.
(6.) The new screen should show a larger version of your scanned document. Now notice the "Save As" icon in the upper left corner. Click that, then "yes" to warning default screen, then select a file name and location to save it into.
(7.) Before clicking save, click the drop box next to the "Save as type:" and select one of the pdf options. Mine offers: "PDF 1-bit", PDF 8-bit Grayscale", and "PDF 24-bit Color" options. Choose one of them then click "save".
(8.) You should then be able to find the scanned pdf file in the directory you selected to save it under.

Note that you may need all of the HP printer utilities and tool software installed for this to work. If you don't, you may need to uninstall/reinstall the printer software.

I can't Scan 8 1/2 by 14. It cuts the scan to that of a regular paper. I can fax by 8 1/2 by 14 and it comes out alright. how i do the set up. I used the set up in the scan but it did not help.


I also had problems scanning legal size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. The documents would scan but would not come out complete. A large portion of the text would always be left out and only an image of the size of regular page size would come out. I knew it had to be something with the settings, so after experimenting with my MFC-7440N I came to the conclusion that I was not going to find the solution on the actual machine. I had a "Hunch" that I would find my solution by connecting the printer to my laptop computer and use the software that came with it. After a couple of minutes I was able to scan Legal Size documents in a breeze... I should of done this months ago. All scanned docs came out in full size.

So I took some screen shots to post them up here to let everyone know how to scan legal size documents since I noticed that people are having trouble just like I did. With this instructions you will also be able to scan any available size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. I will also guide you step by step. After step 4 the remainder steps are OPTIONAL unless you need to change the color or picture file types. Okay, here we go!

Step 1.
Make sure your MFC-7440N is connected to your computer and the computer has the software installed that came with the printer.
Place the Legal Sized documents/papers that you want to scan on the Paper Feeder Scanner located on the most upper area of the machine.

Step 2. On your computer, go to START then to DEVICES and PRINTERS, or CONTROL PANEL then DEVICES and PRINTERS. Locate the icon of your MFC-7440N. If its not your DEFAULT printer make it the default one. Then RIGHT Click on the icon. A menu will pop open. Locate START SCAN and click it.

Step 3. A small window will open that will give you various options to scan a multitude of sizes and different settings. Locate where it says SOURCE. The default setting might be FLATBED meaning the flatbed scanner of your machine. Click the drop down menu and select FEEDER. By selecting the feeder option your computer will tell your machine to use the automatic paper scanner located on the most upper area of your machine.

Step 4. Locate PAPER SIZE. Click on the drop down menu and then select Legal 8.5 x 14 inches (216 x 356mm).
If your documents are already located in the feeder you can now go ahead and click SCAN and your documents will begin to scan.
Your scanned documents will be saved in a file folder in your computer and that file will pop open for your convenience once all documents are scanned.

If you need to change COLOR or Black and White setting plus Picture File Types such as Jpeg or Tiff just click on their respective drop down menu before clicking SCAN.Here are some pictures to help me illustrate it.

I hope you find this helpful.

Thank You!
