Many times have thought that Is it possible to copy text from scanned photos just selecting its some parts? Then answer is yes, absolutely. Some days ago in my college, Professor gave punishment us to make word document from Book. I think it is quite hard to type all words from the book and then I searched on Internet about this topic how to copy text from images and I found software and I have done my work within one hour.
The software which is quite useful for this work it is called "JOCR"
which facilitates Capture the Image from which we want to Copy and Covert the Image into Text which we have captured. JOCR is very useful tool for those document from which we can not select text word from it like images, scanned photographs, some pdf files, error massages which some times comes due to any computer or network problem. JOCR software is based on "Optical Character Recognition" Technology.
