Copy Text From Image File and Save It As Word Documents With Free OCR to Word

Looking for an easy solution for copy text from your scanned documents and image files? Then, you may certainly love Free OCR to Word application. This simple, yet powerful OCR (optical character recognition) application avoids the hassles of retyping work. As it name means, it scans your image file and save the copied text into text file or Word documents.

Free OCR to Word, perhaps one of the best, free OCR software I have tried yet, supports almost all image files (but not PDF) and almost accurately identify text within image files (depending on the quality of image) and turn it into editable electronic document.

Using Free OCR to Word is quite simple. Just open an image file, click OCR button or use Ctrl + S keys. It will instantly extract the text from the image. The extract text can be saved as a text file to your PC or exported to your MS Word for further editing.

 In addition, you can remove line breaks, copy and paste the text, even add some words that are missing or correct the wrong words from within the application.

For better result, this application offers some other tools to correct your image file. For example, if the input image contains the orientation and skew errors, you can use "Rotate CW" or "Rotate ACW" tools to fix the angle of them.

Free OCR to Word can be downloaded from developer’s website here for free.
