    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie with an Epson SX115 that came with ABBYY Finereader OCR on its installation disc. After reading OCR the Finereader offers me Word as the place to record the result.I don't have Microsoft Word. Nowhere else was offered. I tried to use Abiword instead but that wouldn't work. Also Open Office didn't work. If I get a different printer where will I be allowed to send the OCR scan to after reading it? I realise I can get Microsoft Word for only £10 off the net but I'm interested in this subject for other reasons, not just practical ones.

    You can save the OCR Final to any folder on your computer.
    At top of screen (on finished product) look under "File" -> Select "Save As" -> Name Your File ->
    Browse for desired folder -> Click Save

    OK. Thanks but are you really sure that ABBY Finereader offers this facility? Have you tried it with Finereader?

    No, I dont have OCR. Believe you must specify that the output document must be WORD .doc,
    .rtf, .docx, .odt, or .txt and of course your reader application must be compatible with your choice.
    WORDPAD, which is on your Windows 7 -> 10 opens most of the above files and you can massage
    those documents on limited basis.
    Regards
