Terrible automatisation of Photosmart C5280 (all-in-one)



Is there any way we can take full advantage of the Readiris OCR application in C5280? I've been wasting my days trying to convert pics to text with the provided software - which is not very helpful to people who want to KNOW what they are doing, as opposed to someone who just want to click next and have results - but I have no luck.


My point is: can I use readiris or whatever OCR HP is using now separately? Outside HP's slick-but-unhelpful interface? I used to have a Scanjet 2400 and the Readiris was properly installed in the PC and usable, but now this... I am thinking of cancelling the purchase in Amazon because I just need to have full control of the recognition of text, I want the software to learn letters like the Readiris Pro 8 used to, I want to select what text is to be recognised and what's not...


This automated thing is really unhelpful. Does anyone know a solution? Like (in my dreams, perhaps) being able to download Readiris Pro 11 for free since am unhappy with the in-built version or something? Is there anyway I can work on the OCR software provided by HP properly?


Thanks a million for the help! Smiley Happy Oh, this is so annoying... I love HP but never thought I'd be disappointed like this...

Re: Photosmart C4580 (*.msi) Where can these files be found on the HP Support System

I cannot scan or copy on my C4580 as I am being asked for an installation package that uses the .msi. Looked everwhere without success. Can anyone help?
