Sometimes we may like the text in an image a lot and we may want it to be kept as our status update or we may just want to send it as a message to someone. In such cases, the option we have is just typing the message. No, actually there is another simple and easier option which lets us extract text from images. And that process will be done using a technology called the OCR which means Optical Character Recognition, there are a lot of ways we can do that, but here in this article, I am showing you how to extract text using OneNote.
OneNote is the best OCR tool and it is also among the very lesser known features of the app that users rarely use. And this features is also the one that puts this application ahead of Evernote.
You need to just follow these instructions to extract text from the images.
- Open a blank page in the application.
- Then click on the insert tab and then on pictures option, select the image file that you wish to convert from image to text.
- Right-click on the image and just tap on the copy text from picture option from the drop down menu.
- Paste it wherever you want.
Thus pull out text from images using this simple process.
