Google Docs OCR

Google has added a wonderful feature to its Google Docs web application. In fact, now you will be able to extract any text from some of the most common used files in the Internet and computers such as: images, photos (JPEG, GIF, PNG) and PDF files. But let’s see this service in detail.

Using such a feature is quite, quite simple. Log-in Google Docs, click  the Upload button, select the file to convert to text, check the Convert text from PDF or Image files to Google Docs documents checkbox and you are done. In fact, all you’ll have to do is press the upload button and Google docs will do the rest by extracting  and formatting the text  for you to edit away. Google Docs uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to scans documents and files. Other features include:

  • The original images will be included in the new document.
  • Supported languages include English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
  • More info here.
