Josh, OCR is optical character recognition, or some prefer to call it optical character reader.
The software has sure improved in the last couple of years! We use Textbridge at work and it's great.

Anon, unfortunately, OCR software is not perfect (ocr stands for something, which I don't remember, but it refers to software that converts scanned images to text).

You can scan a document and convert it to text, but there will always be some issues where it doesn't quite translate some letters properly.

You will just have to go in and correct the errors. Then, Highlight the page and change the font to what you want it to be.

I have windows98 2nd ed. and a hp5370cxi scanner. I beleive my scanner software is I.R.I.S and Caere Pagekeeper software that came with the scanner. When I try to scan a text file into msword 2000 some words transfer misspelled and the formating is off. I'm running MS Works 2000 that came with my Dell 4100 Dimention and an oem copy of MS office 97 I bought at an Ebay auction. I installed works 1st and office later. Do you have any idea what could be causing this problem?

Help, I have Windows XP home edition and have been unable to get my HP932C printer to print on both sides of the paper. I tell it to flip front to back and it still prints on two sheets of paper.I also have a Umax Astra 610P scanner and the Vista Scan with the copy utility gives me a"scanner link failed" error message

D.T.:

Your scanner will scan things, but will not give you the options to print unless you use 3rd party software. Your scanner almost certainly came with the software to do this. Because different scanners come with different software, I cannot be specific on where to find this or the exact instructions, but I can give a general idea.

You will need to start up this program (probably any graphic program you have will work), then click File, and Aquire, or Twain Aquire on the menu. When you select that, you should see a scanner menu appear. This is probably what you are familiar with seeing when scanning. Just hit preview to get a preview of the document, select the area you want to scan, and hit scan.

This will bring your scanned object into the graphic program. From that point, you can click file-save to save it, or file-print to print it out.

Hope that helps....

Josh

Hi. You & Catchup helped me out once before, so I thought I'd give you another problem.
I have a Primax Colorado 600p scanner. How do I scan a document so that I can print it on my printer?
Have read the instructions and the help section, but still can't figure. Help!!!

Yvonne:

What is the brand and model number of the scanner? (will be in your scanner documentation). What type of operating system are you running, win95, win98, winME?

Let me know that information so I can try and help you.
