10.6: How to use OCR with HP multi-function printers
Authored by: mchagers on Feb 19, '10 12:58:47AM

Apparently it would work sometimes, and not in other cases (models?).
Rather than fixing the problematic cases, HP chose to tell everyone to stop using the old software.

Before the driver update I tried every tip I could find, reinstalled the same HP software, it would install, it would start a scan and then report some obscure error that I couldn't find any info on.

Finally I just gave up, vowing to never buy an HP printer ever again. Then after a SL upgrade suddenly I could access the scanner from Preview (see my other comment of today).
