More often than not, working with text gives you a vast range of possibilities in searching, editing and sharing content with others. Easy Screen OCR is a tool that enables you to grab snapshots of your screen and extract the text for more convenient editing.
Following a quick setup that entails decompressing the archive in any desired location, you can access the tool from the System Tray. The program does not have an interface per se, but does bring forth a window that allows you to preview and process the text as soon as you make a capture of your screen.
As far as customization goes, you do not have too many options. Therefore, you can set your custom key from capturing the desired area of the screen, so you have a smoother workflow. At the same time, you can save the captures as images (PNG, BMP, JPEG and GIF) or PDF files.
Functionality-wise, the program is as simple to use as it looks, meaning that once you grab the capture, you can extract the text with just one click. It goes without saying that you can copy the text to clipboard or anywhere else and edit it accordingly.
It is worth mentioning that the OCR operation is performed in the cloud and it is powered by Google OCR. While it is true that you can expect high recognition accuracy, it is important that you check your network and ensure your computer works on a stable connection.
In the eventuality that you are creating tutorials on troubleshooting or similar topics where both visual and written instructions would come in handy, then Easy Screen OCR can help you grab screenshots as well as extract the relevant text from these images or PDF files.
