OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition which is a technology to convert image to text. Turn your mobile phone into a portable text reader now!
It is better than other OCR apps in terms of simplicity and functionality. With strong points such as:
1) Offline OCR engine – doesn’t require sending data to servers for processing.
2) Image enhancement engine – Capable of removing noise such as flickering lines seen when taking photo of a computer screen! Image crop and rotation are supported too.
3) Simplicity – very simple to use!
4) Digitized text can be copied to clipboard or shared to other apps directly.
5) Save to SD card (Pro version only) – enhanced image and digitized text can be saved as .jpg and .txt.
6) Paragraph Scanning Mode (Pro version only) – detects and removes unwanted line breaks in paragraphs.
7) Text To Speech support (Pro version only) – supported languages depend on the Text To Speech (TTS) engine installed on your device. The default engine in most devices only supports English (UK), English (US), French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
8) Multi-Language OCR support (Pro version only) – perform OCR on text that contains multiple languages. Note: Latin + non-Latin based language combinations don’t work well, for example Chinese + English. For this case it is better to OCR with only Chinese language selected and then edit the English areas that are incorrect.
9) Huge language support: (contact me if your language is missing, I might have just missed it)
Afrikaans, Ancient Greek, Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian (Old), Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian (Latin), Slovenian, Spanish (old), Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese
– Note that languages supported for OCR requires a one time download of the respective language pack within the app settings (except for English which is included).
– OCR result for Chinese, Japanese and Korean still needs improvement, but have been drastically improved on version v1.3.0 onwards, try it out on the Free version first!
