Smart Panel 4.x > How to use > What can I do if I cannot use Scan to OCR after installing Smart Panel 4?
The Scan to OCR function requires ABBYY FineReader Sprint. Please install FineReader Sprint before starting Edit Text. If your system does not have FineReader Sprint, the Edit Text button will be disabled.

Now Smart Panel includes PageManager 9 and it includes the OCR function. The simple steps are to launch PageManager 9 and then select the scanned document image. Click OCR button from Tool bard to start the document recognition and then click Save as txt or RTF format for further editing in Word Processor.
