In modern life, almost everyone has cell phones and many people use Android phones. There are many applications for Android phones that are useful in different situations. The situation mentioned is one of them. So there is a solution.
You can extract texts from photos taken with your phone’s camera or images that already exist in the gallery of your device. The process is very simple. You just have to follow some simple steps using some applications that are known as OCR applications.
OCR (optical character recognition) is a method to extract texts from an image and convert it into an editable document. When a page is scanned, it is usually stored as a bitmap file in TIF format. But for the device, it’s just a series of black and white dots. The device does not recognize any “word” in the image.
This is what OCR does. OCR looks at each line of the image and tries to determine if the black and white points represent a particular letter or number. OCR was originally developed to help people with visual impairments access printed information.
Anyway, these OCR applications are really useful to extract text from an image. You can edit your documents after your text is extracted from the image.
