Incoming scans from Brother iPrint&Scan are NOT automatically being OCR'd

Setting in DT3 is as it should be – switching off and on again does not help:

Are you saving to the the Global Inbox?
Files added that way will not be automatically OCR’d.

You can use File > Import > Images (with OCR) or create a smart rule with an On Import event trigger.

I’m saving to the global inbox as I did before with DT 2.9.x and a Scansnap scanner. Nevertheless then incoming scans were automatically OCR’d but not now. When I change import preferences to “Select Group” the incoming scan asks for a group but nevertheless it will not be OCR’d.

Please elaborate what you mean by

For me, after installing DT3.0, the OCR software was not installed.

I right-clicked on the document, and selected OCR -> to searchable PDF

This triggered an install of ABBYY Finereader. Now all is good

Hope this help

It’s installed already – thank you.

Lost interest, Mr Neumann? Thank you for your continued support!
