    Question OCR software

    I would like to use OCR from my Brother All In One printer. I can bring up Control Center, the OCR tab, Scan, but then it says no OCR software installed and to install it first. I scrutinized the CD that came with the printer, but just don't see where I can install it from there. Is there somewhere else I can download this software (hopefully free)?
    Windows 8.1
    MS Office 2013

    If your printer was an inexpensive one, it may not have been supplied with OCR software, in which case there are a number of free programs of varying levels of efficiency, most of them bundling PUPs with the installers.

    With OCR, its a case of you get what you pay for and its usually worth what you pay for it.

    Always check for bundled unwanted extras when downloading and installing any new software and be sure to decline them. Use custom install when it’s available.
