Do you need to extract text from images, videos or PDF? If yes, then the Copyfish free OCR software is for you.
Common reasons to extract text from images are if you want to google it, store it, email it or translate it. Until now, your only option was to retype the text. Copyfish is soooo much faster and more fun.
“Images” come in all kinds of forms: photographs, charts, diagrams, screenshots, PDF documents, comics, error messages, memes, Flash – and Youtube movies.
For extension gurus: You might have heard of Project Naptha, a great addon that applies state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image you see while browsing the web. Copyfish solves the same problem, but it takes a different user interface approach. It does not try to alter the website. Instead, it lets you mark the text in the image that you want to extract. As a result Copyfish works with every website, even videos and PDF documents.
For developers: Copyfish is published under an open-source (GPL) license. As OCR software, it uses the free OCR API on https://ocr.space/.
