Everytime I try to scan a document and then put it into word, the following error comes up:
An OCR application is provided for you on your CD in the OCR directory. Select OK to cancel this scan operation, install your OCR software, and try your scan again.

What is OCR?  I do not have the original disk and the lexmark site does not have the ocr software only the driver. where can I get this software please?

    OCR is Optical Character Recognition. Without it, all you are scanning is a bitmap. Is your intent to place the bitmap image into the document? If that's the case, you can just have is save the file to the disk.
