Description from store Live Demo: http://projectnaptha.com/ Project Naptha automatically applies state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image you see while browsing the web. The result is a seamless and intuitive experience, where you can highlight as well as copy and paste and even edit and translate the text formerly trapped within an image. Words on the web exist in two forms: there’s the text of articles, emails, tweets, chats and blogs— which can be copied, searched, translated, edited and selected— and then there’s the text which is shackled to images, found in comics, document scans, photographs, posters, charts, diagrams, screenshots and memes. Interaction with this second type of text has always been a second class experience, the only way to search or copy a sentence from an image would be to do as the ancient monks did, manually transcribing regions of interest. You can watch as moving your cursor over a block of words changes it into the little I-beam. You can drag over a few lines and watch as a semitransparent blue box highlights the text, helping you keep track of where you are and what you’re reading. Hit Ctrl+C to copy the text, where you can paste it into a search bar, a Word document, an email or a chat window. Right-click and you can erase the words from an image, edit the words, or even translate it into a different language. Security & Privacy: Project Naptha handles OCR and text detection locally on your computer. When highlighting text, the extension checks a remote server to determine whether a public high quality transcription exists using a cryptographic hash of the URL (this includes no cookies, user tokens, or any identifying information, and the server is incapable of storing access logs). For more information, read the section on security and privacy on http://projectnaptha.com/

  • (2023-01-23) Liseiko “Liseiko”: Unusable. Never once it recognized a word on any picture and i don't even mean pictures with Japanese or Chinese words, it can't even recognize English. For some reason it does like to recognize eyes as a letters or symbols, also sometimes it has a problem with even detecting a picture as something it should be working with. 1/10 raw, pre alpha even.
  • (2023-01-18) Ánh Nguyễn Văn: Awsome extension. However, there are issues when recognizing the letter "a", the app always return to "#" or "o", which are incorrect. Please fix it.

  • (2022-12-15) Unknown Guy: not working
  • (2022-12-02) Sai Rakshith.A: I use it every single day; it's one of the greatest extensions. However, there is one issue: the image erazer needs improvement. I know it's in beta, but I still wanted to let you know. I appreciate you making my life a little bit simpler.
  • (2022-11-27) Adam Veary: I've had this extension installed for years because I needed it for something once and then just neglected to delete it. It has never, once, ever, a single time, at any point, actually accurately pulled text from an image. All it's really good for is causing extra clicks when you want to click on an image because it thinks you're trying to highlight something that a lot of the time isn't even text. Cool idea and would be useful if it worked even like 1/4 of the time, which it doesn't.
  • (2022-11-15) Ramilka Rodrigo 1: Not working

  • (2022-10-11) Redhead Homie: If I could give this less than 1 star I would. It doesn't work, it is very annoying and nothing works like it says it should, there is no where to find out how to fix the issue. DO NOT GET THIS!

  • (2022-10-07) Максим Кушнір: От плохого до полной ***** 1) Работает не на всех сайтах 2) Не все языки воспринимает 3) Не всё выделяет 4) когда распознает, пищит какую-то ху/*\ню
  • (2022-10-05) Bigmous Callers: This extension is completely useless and doesn't copy 99% of the text that you try to copy, there are tons of better alternatives.
  • (2022-09-25) Tyrion Lannister: not working, nice scam
  • (2022-09-22) Steve M5: not working
  • (2022-09-21) Martus Judah Chandiramani: It was okay, but it just butchered the punctuation, formatting, and it mistook z from 2, R from u, and adds random quote symbol in the text like: hel"oo!! and it only work 50% of the time, but its okay i guess
