    Does your scanner scan to other programs? What brand , model and model # is it please? It seems odd that if it works with other programs that import scans, it won' t work with this one. Please try scanning into a photo program, and let me know if it works. It could be that the program is at fault. We will do our best to figure this out, one step at a time. Let me know.

Does the N122OU have OCR capability?


OCR can work on any Scanner, I Believe that the Software is what converts to OCR. I Have A CanoScan N659U. Using Microsoft Office Document Imaging software scanned 150 sheets of genealogy that I do not have to retype. OCR has been around sense about 1928 however, not until about 1974 was the principal used with Flatbed scanners. They do have a few Open source OCR scanning software's available, and they have serval online OCR services. I Prefer the MicroSoft Office 2007 Document Imaging Software myself.

Hi there,
On OCR software we can only scan a full text documents. Document that doesn't have any line, image, graphic. Try to scan a full text document and check if that will work.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Can the canoscan lide 70 scan documents to work so they can be edited? Is so how


Yes, but you have to use a special program called an "OCR" (Optical Character Recognizer) which will "read" the document from the scan. A scanner only produces a picture of a document, and it requries special software to "read" that image and make it editable.
The LIDE 70 comes with OMNIPAGE SE (special edition) which will work for simple documents. For more complex documents, you may need to buy the full edition of OMNIPAGE or another OCR package like FineReader. It is also built in fto software like OneNote and Evernote.

In order to scan to word so a document is editable you need to use Optical Character Recognition Software (OCR). You can download free ocr software from www.simpleocr.com Use that software and then either export once scanned to Word or Save as a Word document in the OCR application.

How do i scan something and then have it shown on my computer so i can edit it ?


You will need to use Optical Character Recognition software such as Abbyy Fine Reader. Most scanners are supplied with software to allow this. You have to use the OCR software and then save or export to word. If you do not have any OCR software then free software can be downloaded from www.simpleocr.com

Scan a Document and Need to edit in Word 2007


Most of the time a scanner by default, will scan a document in a tif or other image file format. That means that the scanned image is actually very similar to a photograph. In order to edit the text, you first have to convert the image using something that's called OCR software. OCR is a process that the software uses to look at a scanned document image and determine what characters are on the page. It's not always very accurate but that depends on the quality of the scan and on the OCR software being used. You must have received some sort of scanning software with the scanner. Hopefully it containes some sort of OCR software. Some scanners will save you this extra image manipulation by having a setting that allows you to scan directly to a word document. Usually in that configuration, the OCR software automatically knows to convert the scanned document image in order to automate the process. But either way, you first have to install the manufacturer's software. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Does your home cooking program facilitate IMPORTING a file? look under the pull down file menu and see if you can locate import. If it is there it should open on over and show ou your scanner which you can choose and proceed to scan the recipe. If it does not, You should be able to scan it to word pad , then selcet all> copy and paste it into your recipe program in a new file. Since I don;t know precisely what your program is or how it works, I suspect that the first opetion is your best bet. Look around in your program and look under help in the program to "import" a recipe or file.


Good luck.
