I dont see any native OCR software from HP with this scanner.  If you want a cheap solution, you could scan to PDF and then use the OCR scanner inside of Adobe Acrobat but its not perfect when scanning at times around things like signatures.  You need to purchase Adobe Acrobat; the Adobe reader does not have OCR feature.  In Acrobat, the OCR feature is under tools.  There may be other PDF editors that do the same function such as Foxit that you may want to review for cost comparison.

If you need high quality OCR, I recommend FineReader.    https://www.abbyy.com/en-us/finereader/pro-for-mac/
