Info updated on:

Any Text is a smart application designed to help you extract text from images, screen areas, or scanned documents for reusing into your projects. Therefore, the tool spares you from the tedious task of manually typing large texts and turns the unelectable content into fully editable text.

The utility opens with a simple and intuitive interface that displays in plain sight the provided modes of text processing. Therefore, it supports quick text selection from any area of your screen, file import from iPhone, picture taken with the webcam, and dragging or loading files from computer drives. Once the image is opened, you just select the text area you wish to extract and the content is automatically copied to the clipboard, ready to be pasted into new documents or opened applications. What is great about this tool is the ability to process multiple text scrips. So, not only English and Latin characters are recognized, but also Arabic, Chinese, Greek, German, Korean and other less common scrip styles. Besides extracting scrips, the application can also translate the resulting text into a wide range of languages. In addition, it supports text highlighting and editing, as well as spell checking.

To sum up, Any Text is a great OCR-based utility that extracts uneditable content and makes it reusable. It is easy to manage, it has no complicated settings, and the results are more than satisfactory. Yet, a feature that could be improved would be that of image zooming so you can better see small-sized texts within pictures or scanned documents.
