Google Keep is used for managing weekly or monthly shop, to plan for projects and a number of other applications. But users will now also be able to use it for converting images into editable text.
The new Google OCR feature lets users convert scanned images containing textual information into high-accuracy text that could be edited.
Google Keep can run on your Android device or on Chrome as an app. This character recognition feature saves you valuable time and money required for typing information from scanned documents.
If you need a long article or ebook converted into textual form, all you have to do is scan it and add to Google Keep. The text will automatically display in the note so that you can copy or edit it.
So how to go about using the new feature? The following steps will guide you how to use Google Keep for converting images into text.
- Make sure that you have an active Internet connection.
- Capture a screenshot of the text that needs to be converted.
- Create a fresh image note in Keep.
- Open the note containing the image and click on the 3 dot overflow button.
- Click on “Grab Image Text.” This will show the text from the image underneath.
- You can then copy the text and paste anywhere.
Once the text is available, you can copy it and use it anywhere.
