Optical Character Recognition is an operation that recognises letters, numbers, and text in general in a file that is not a document. This can be an image like PNG or JPG, or a scanned page from a book or article in the PDF format.

With this online OCR converter, you can extract the text from any picture or photo you have taken, e.g. from presentation slides, and generate a generic text file. The TXT file format is very simple as it contains only text, no formatting, and can be opened in all word processing or text editing programs.
