You have to install a programe called: ABBY FineReader 5.0 Sprint. Although there are newer editions available, this is the programme that comes with the cd and is available to download free of the net. Hope this helps.

I have one of these myself. I am assuming you mean the main page is gone. I am willing to bet you have had some spyware or malware attack the driver settings in your registry, as well as a faulty cd. Go to lexmark main web site, download the correct drivers for your printer (google lexmark) and download to your harddrive. Save it on a new cd. Run a program like regcure that will allow you to fix registry errors. Now, run antispyware just to be sure, as well as virus check. Housecall is free and really good!!! Fixes all it finds. Uninstall printer. Reinstall with new cd'driver. Happy printing.

My Canoscan 4200F has no OCR software. How do I get it?

OCR software is usually a third-party program. Sometimes it is available on the original driver CD but it isn't included in the downloaded driver software. In the case of the CanoScan 4200F, the CD included the OmniPage SE OCR program. The SE indicates a Special Edition only bundled with the scanner and was only available for the OS versions that had been released when the scanner was first available. If you have the original CD (for Win98-XP), try to install the program using the Custom install option. (Check your current OS version. A 32-bit OS is more likely to support the OmniPage SE. With Windows Vista and 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System to determine the version. x64 indicates a 64-bit OS. ) If your current computer doesn't have an optical drive, use an external optical drive to install the program.

If you do not have the CD or your OS is incompatible with the Omnipage version on the CD, you will need to either purchase OmnuPage ($99 with a rebate from many vendors), AbbySoft's OCR program or one of the other OCR programs. SimpleOCR is free for personal use, http://www.simpleocr.com/Info.asp . The biggest problem with the free OCR programs is that they do not handle documents with columns properly.

I wish that I had better news for you.

How do i download ocr for lexmark x1100 for vista i have lost cd

The Lexmark OCR software can only be installed using the installation disk that came with the printer. It's not available for download online. If you don't have it or you lost it, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support for assistance. Thanks.

Here's the link: http://www.siliconguide.com/drivers/device/85/

X5495 - OCR Program Missing.

Do you have MS Office 2003 or 2007? If so, there is a Microsoft Document Imaging tool that you can use to scan text documents. You can also search www.download.com for free OCR tools you can use for the same purpose.

Lexmark X2500 driver is missing OCR software

Sometimes companies only support only the basic drivers. The OCR software is on the CD (s) that came with the printer. Suggestion. Try to order the original CD from Lexmark., or search Ebay for programs that have OCR capability. You can use OCR programs from other vendors as long as they are stand-a-lone programs. Just make sure you have the original disc so as not to infringe on copyright privileges.

Note: you can buy OCR programs. Check Ebay and Amazon. They are usually better that the programs that come on the OEM disk.
