Hello!

Thank you for your question. I am Shefin and I look forward to helping you with your issue today.

Please be informed that there is no driver available for the printer that is compatible with Mac OS X 10.11. I would suggest you try Image Capture and if the issue persists, I would suggest you get another printer/scanner.

Thank you.
