Image from store Copyfish 🐟 Free OCR Software
Description from store Do you need to extract text from images, videos or PDF? If yes, then the Copyfish free OCR software is for you. Common reasons to extract text from images are to google it, store it, email it or translate it. Until now, your only option was to retype the text. Copyfish is soooo much faster and more fun. “Images” come in many forms: photographs, charts, diagrams, screenshots, PDF documents, comics, error messages, memes, Flash – and Youtube movies. You can verify the results in one glance with the extracted text overlay. Do you need to switch between OCR languages often? You can define "Quick Switch" buttons for up to three languages on the settings page. For language learners: There are many translator addons available, but they only work with plain website text. Text inside images, in tricky Javascript/AJAX or, especially, in movie subtitles on Youtube or Youku is unreachable for them. But not for Copyfish. And if you want, Copyfish also translates the text for you. Especially for the subtitle translation use case, Copyfish has a repeat feature. Mark the area of the subtitle once and then use the "Do OCR" button to grab the latest text from the movie screen. For extension gurus: You might have heard of Project Naptha, a great addon that applies state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image you see while browsing the web. Copyfish solves the same problem, but it takes a different user interface approach. It does not try to alter the website. Instead, it lets you mark the text in the image you want to extract. As a result Copyfish works with every website, even videos and PDF documents. For developers: Copyfish is published under the GPL open-source license. As OCR software, it uses the free OCR API from https://ocr.space/ . QUESTIONS? SUGGESTIONS? Please email [email protected]

  • (2020-03-10) Mafaher: Lo mejor de lo mejor, para los que no les funcione por ejemplo en documentos descargados, PDF en especifico. Tienen que ir a la conficuracion de sus extensiones, darle en detalles de Copyfish y habilitar que pueda leer rutas locales. Y listo debería funcionar normal. Gracias al desarrollador. Me ayudaste a crear mi tesis.

  • (2020-03-05) Vinay Patel: Works perfectly
  • (2020-03-04) 趋心若鹜: There is a problem, after I make a change in the settings page, there is a high probability that the default setting will be restored next time. Such problems often occur, and even make me consider giving up Copyfish.

  • (2020-01-24) ken lam: 現在頗準,容易用,在原檔上層 layer 印出翻譯結果,方便校對。
  • (2020-01-13) Rohit Rathod: GOOD
  • (2020-01-07) Tonya Valcer: This is really great, but it would be event greater if the panel had more lightweight mode - the mode where everything is removed except 4 buttons "Redo", "Recapture", "Copy" and google translate button. It will make extension perfect. Another useful things would be -ability to turn on auto copy of captured text -hot key for recapture action
  • (2020-01-02) Shivam's Art: Very useful and easy to use ☺☺☺
  • (2019-12-22) Andrés Romero: En mi opinión, el mejor OCR de navegador, porque escanea instantáneamente el texto sin necesidad de abrir pestañas nuevas, cargar capturas desde el equipo, descargar paquetes de idiomas etc etc etc.... Muy fácil de usar, intuitivo y eficiente. (A veces no entiendo su baja calificación)

    Does this work on hand written text? I know Google's api supports it, conditionally. If so, you should include that in the extension's detail page. A lot of OCR programs do not support it, so it would be a valuable piece of info to include in the description.

    Hi Copyfish team, I installed the chrome extension but can't get the Czech language to work. The "loading" indicator just rotates indefinitely and nothing happens. English (and few other languages) work just fine. When trying the ocr.space service, it also works fine with Czech. Can you please have a look at it? Thank you!
