Does scanning print as OCR work in TextEdit? iWork?

I have an HP Photosmart printer in OSX 10.6.2 and 10.4.11.

Well, you can't scan with either TextEdit or iWork. You need OCR software. Neither has an interface for capture, so you need to fire up the OCR software separately. I think there's an article for that.

Got it. I almost upgraded the OEM I.R.I.S. software that came with my printer- thank god I didn't. I went with your recommendation of the ABBYY FineReader and got Office for Mac 2008.

No to get it to work with my printer properly...
