Image from store Image Reader (OCR)
Description from store Image Reader (OCR) extension helps you easily get words out of any image. It uses an open-source OCR library called Tesseract. Tesseract.js is an open-source JavaScript library and is made via an Emscripten port of the famous Tesseract OCR Engine written in C and C++. Please visit (https://github.com/naptha/tesseract.js) to get more info. To work with this addon, simply open the addon's interface and load your image via the file selector (top section). Before using the addon, please make sure to select the appropriate OCR language. Default OCR language is set to English. Note: this addon uses the "https://github.com/naptha/tessdata/tree/gh-pages/"; GitHub repo to fetch language data required for the OCR operation. Language data packs are very large and cannot be included in the addon package. To report bugs, please fill the bug report form on the extension's homepage (https://mybrowseraddon.com/image-reader.html).

  • (2023-11-03) Vasquez: Bazı kelime ve cümleleri düzgünce okuyamıyor ve aktaramıyor, kullanışsız
  • (2023-05-03) Diamond Dream: its great
  • (2023-01-03) Ayman Mahrous: the best
  • (2022-10-01) Gokey 517: Using it for things where you cant copy paste the information in a reading that a teacher gives to cite information, it works great. Make sure you set it to the best setting before trying to translate otherwise it comes out as random words. (Pretty sure the other reviews didn't do this before giving up on it). I haven't tested it on harder to read text styles, but basic textbook text styles come out decently with the 1% chance a word is messed up. The only other issue is it doesn't copy paste cleanly they add 'enter' spaces at the end of each line to make it flow exactly like the picture so when copy pasting it into word or a google doc you have to clean them up, but otherwise it works.
