Want to copy text from an image online? Do you want to extract any string of characters from any image, without having to re-type everything by hand?

OCR is a computer process that converts various types of files (scanned paper documents, PDF files or digital photos) into editable text files.

The OCR Online site uses this technology to copy the text of an inline image. It accepts formats JPG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, or PDF.

To use it, nothing could be simpler:

  • First, go to the site OCR Online. Then click on the "Choose a file" button.
  • Then select the image whose text you want to retrieve and click "Open".
  • Select the French language if the document is in French
  • Validate with the button " Convert»
  • Finally click on the button " Download the output file».

Your file is converted into a usable text format.

By using this free service, I have found that the process of converting data from an image takes less than a minute and the end result, recognized is identical to the original!

If the result requires some retouching depending on the quality of your original image, most characters and words are recognized and you can retrieve your text in your word processor.

The only flaw of OCR Online is that it knows some restrictions: the images must not be more than 15MB, and there is a limit of 15 images per hour.
