Free OCR Software Download – Freeware Apps To Convert Image To Text


Valid until 31 January 2015 (unless noted)
Free OCR Software DownloadHow do I convert images to text? If it is the case you can use OCR software. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a tool to help you to extract any characters (words, alphabet, dots, numbers, etc.) from images, convert images or pictures or photos to editable text and then you can save it to document formats such as Microsoft word, PDF, txt, rtf, html and etc.

So if you have images from scanned documents or photo shots (jpeg, tiff, gif and bmp formats), you don’t have to re-type all characters from images to your office program, just use OCR software to convert image to text. However, the conversions are not always perfect, it will depend on image’s quality. But don’t worry; because the text is editable thus you can correct them manually.

Most of OCR programs are commercial software, there are few OCR freeware available. Here I would like to share 2 (two) free OCR software for you. If you know another softwares, please share them on comment section.
