How this free online OCR tool works

This online tool converts scans or images of text documents into editable Word documents using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. All Word documents are converted with the original document layout and columns preserved. The larger and more clear the scans of text, the better the results will be. In most cases, we can achieve over 99% accuracy in detecting the text in your images.
This tool is free to use, no registration necessary.
