Why convert Image to text?

With the growth of digital platforms, most of our day-to-day admin activities in business, education, personal life or across the health and financial sectors are at the face of a device - be that a phone, computer or tablet - interfacing with technology that makes our lives easier and more efficient. We're constantly searching for ways to automate processes that are too time-consuming; this is where image-to-text converters come in. Using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software, these image-to-text converters have the ability to scan an image, extract any identified text and convert it into an editable or searchable digital format that can then be exported or converted to a format you can use in other contexts. For example, this could look like a student who has captured an image of a presentation slide on their phone, in business this may look like an employee who has taken an image of a dossier or pamphlet, and in finance this may be a photo of a receipt. In all cases, the tedious task of manually copying and typing content from images is a thing of the past with the Zamzar text extractor, saving you precious time and effort.
