It seems somewhat ironic to me that someone built this whole paper to ocr system, and then says "hey use it with a scanner like X", which has OCR capabilities (producing searchable PDFs) built in.

It's not built in to the scanner. It's done by the software that comes with the scanner for Windows and OS X.

Thanks for the clarification.
