Windows 7: Office 2013 and installing OCR for documenting scanning

Office 2013 and installing OCR for documenting scanning

I went through the following procedure

Launch Uninstall program, select Office2013, click change, select Add or Remove Features, click Continue, scroll down to Office Tools and expand it, select OCR.
In the drop down selection there are three small boxes,

Run from My Computer with blue background,
Installed on First use with 1 on it, and
Not Available with a red x through it.

I then clicked on the the box with 1 on it and it came up to the top of the highlighted OCR

Clicked continue and get the message "Configuring MS Office" . When it has finished, it states that it will be complete at the opening of the next Office program.

After that procedure, in Office 2007, when I went into Tools, I could see MS Office document imaging, but it's not there in Office 2013. Can anyone tell me where it's located?

The only difference in the procedure between 2007 and 2013 was that the former required the Office 2007 disk to instal the OCR while the latter did not ask for anything. If the disk is required for 2013, how can I get it to request it?

Hope someone can sort this out for me.

Windows 8.1 ; Windows 7 x86 (Dec2008-Jan2013)

Microsoft Office Document Imaging and Microsoft Office Document Scanning are discontinued with Office 2010.

So, looks like to do OCR in Office 2013 one would have to use OneNote 2013...

Thank you for your reply. I have not used OneNote before so I'll give it a try.
