Text cannot be edited
Check the settings
Make sure that the OCR software is set to edit text.
When you scan the original, make sure that you select a document type that
creates editable text. If text is classified as a graphic, it is not converted to text.
Your OCR program might be linked to a word-processing program that does
not perform OCR tasks. See the product software Help for more information
about linking programs.
Check the originals
For OCR, the original must be loaded into the ADF with the top forward and
face-up. Make sure that you loaded the original correctly. For more information,

The OCR program might not recognize text that is tightly spaced. For example,
if the text that the OCR program converts has missing or combined characters,
"rn" might appear as "m."
The accuracy of the OCR program depends on the image quality, text size,
and structure of the original and the quality of the scan itself. Make sure that
your original has good image quality.
Colored backgrounds can cause images in the foreground to blend too much.
Try adjusting the settings before you scan the original, or try enhancing the
image after you scan the original. If you are performing an OCR operation on
an original, any colored text on the original does not scan well, if at all.
