Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have downloaded the Multifunction Suite for my Windows 7 and all but the OCR Software was included. Is there a free OCR Scan Soft Paper Port OCR software available?
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.

You can install the OCR software from the CD. Run the Setup and you should probably see an option to install "Additional software". Choose "Abbyy...", this is the OCR software you need.
If you don't have the CD anymore you will probably have to call Lexmark Customer Support to order one. I don't think the OCR software is available for download.
