Welcome to the HP Community Forum.

 

True -- If you downloaded and installed the latest driver available, the embedded OCR software has been removed from the Installation package.

No - I do not know the reason for the removal -- Could have been license issues with the OCR people (who wrote the code), incompatibility with the latest Windows 10, or "anything" else.

 

If you have a previously downloaded and slightly earlier version of the driver, uninstall the existing printer software > Restart the computer and log in > Install your older Installation package > Restart the computer and log in.

 

What else?

"Get", purchase, download OCR software to use with your environment.
