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.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
