Extract Text from Pictures and Scanned Documents
Have you ever felt the need of gathering text from an image and writing it onto your editor just because you want a text format. It can be very tiring and would even take a lot of time to write the text gain.
So, in this post today I will tell you how to extract the text in the image into text format.
This will be achieved using the One Note tool from Microsoft Office. This tool is available for Microsoft Office OneNote. This software supports Optical Character Recognition (OCR), a tool that lets you copy text from a picture or file printout and paste it in your notes so you can make changes to the words. It’s a great way to do things like copy info from a business card you’ve scanned into OneNote. After you extract the text, you can paste it somewhere else in OneNote or in another program, like Outlook or Word.
We will be applying the process of OCR to this image.
