A handy tool to read image files via a smart OCR engine. This app uses Tesseract optical character recognition engine to read the image file. Currently, it supports .png, .jpg, .bmp and .pbm image file formats. Drop your image file, set desired accuracy and input language and then wait for the OCR engine to finish the job.
As mentioned above, there are four different levels of accuracy in this app. Different accuracies are as follows: (1) Low (2) Fast (shorter OCR time) (3) Best (better OCR accuracy) (4) Moderate. When you choose a specific accuracy level, the OCR engine fetches the language data from "https://github.com/naptha/tessdata/tree/gh-pages/" GitHub repo. Depending on the accuracy level, loading language data may vary significantly. The result of the OCR engine highly depends on the level of complexity in the image file. For clean and readable images, this level could rise to 95%. The final text result is then rendered in a textbox, which you can copy & paste to other applications/environments.
Image Reader app is also available as a browser extension. As an extension, this app does not need an internet connection and can be used offline in your browser. Download links for three popular browsers are as follows: Chrome, Opera, Firefox.
