Copy text from images with Optical Character Recognition

Image from store Textocry - copy text from images
Description from store As a developer you don't always find code in text format, quite often it's a: - Video format - youtube / pluralsight tutorial. - Image format - from lazy friends or lazy bloggers. In every instance you need to write it down character by character. But not with Textocry! Using Textocry you can select the area/image with the text and let TesseractJS extract the text for you, load it into your Clipboard and you can paste it anywhere! Textocry can extract any text, it's not meant just for code. Example usage can be seen in the video above.

  • (2020-10-30) Tehnokiller: i m trying to copy but instead of 0 it puts 6 or 9 or 8
  • (2020-10-16) Shubhanshu Jain: great, gets the work done
  • (2020-10-10) Mohamed Salem: I love it it's really really cool i will not write again 😍😍😍😍😍
  • (2020-03-09) James Davis: Excellent but words occuring at the end of aline are often combined so there is no space between them. Copyfish does not have this problem.
  • (2019-10-02) Dan Moore: Perfectly what I needed! I needed to copy text from block over 80 times. I needed the input without th headings. If you copied and pasted, you got funky formatting, header blocks every time, etc. With this plugin, I drew a square around just the input I needed and it popped it into my clipboard. Occasionally there was a dash where there shouldn't be, and .com was .c0m, but it did 99% of what I needed. Great extension for Chrome.
  • (2019-05-16) Benjamin: lamest extension i ever used. sure it captures images and convert them to text then add them to your clipboard so you could paste it. but it also stuff the text with spam and links, so that you have to edit whatever you paste.
  • (2019-03-21) M D: Finally an OCR extension that works, it would be so much better if it supported other languages too, it would be helpful to translate texts from images.
  • (2018-12-06) Albiona Hoti: This tool is awesome. No more separating the screen in two to follow up tutorials :)))
