@drgeraldmiller, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


OCR feature is not available with HP Printer Software now. You will have to use a third-party application.


Use the HP Scan Extended app to scan and check if that helps.

Click here to download the app. 

Once it's downloaded and installed, go to Start > All Programs > HP > HP Scan Extended > Run "HP Scan Extended"


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
