    Is there any way to add word programs in document viewer? When you go to use OCR a window opens, the only option I have is MS Word - which is not active. We never bought the full version. Is there some way we can add other word programs - we have Works and Open Office. Can those be added some how?

    Have to scan documents into a word program and edit it.

    Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    Hello, Mr. Predisent, :D

    You probably need to change the default word-processor in Control Panel>Folder Options but finding the relevant filename extension and changing the Open With option to OO or the Works word-pro.
