How to Scan Text into a Word 2007 Document

In Word 2003 there used to be an option under the File menu, clicking which will scan and OCR a text document from your scanner in a single step. When I installed Office 2007, this option was still available to me though through another menu (as far as I remember through add-inns). I think how word previously did it for me was using my scanner and OCR Software (which was Omnipage 16)
For some reason I can no longer find that option any where in the Ribbon in 2007. I do remember using it successfully a few months ago. I would appreciate help in finding it back.
My scanner is HP Officejet J5780 and I have Omnipage 16 installed on my PC.
Thanks for your help in anticipation

Word dosen't actually have built in scanning support, that is something an add on program has to add.
In your case you have OmniPage 16 and it has support for Word 2007.
To resolve your issue I recommend that you uninstall OmniPage 16 the reinstall OmniPage 16. It should recognize your Word 2007 and set it up correctly.
