Print drivers are what allow you to print documents. Every printer has a specific driver. It not only allows your computer to send text to the printer but allows your printer to communicate with the computer as well. For instance, letting it know if it encounters any problems or if it has low ink levels. New software to text writing programs like MS Word or OpenOffice anticipate new updates to print drivers. These updates allow your printer to organize the delivery of texts and graphics on the page. If you are not up to date on the most current print drivers, then you are at risk for print errors.
