It’s always a challenge converting scanned documents since the scanner produces documents as images. OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology enables you to convert a scanned document to MS Word Or Excel. This may not be 100% accurate but can save you the hustle of retyping a whole document.

To achieve this, you can use a dedicated OCR website that will let you upload the image and will extract the text for you. For this tutorial, we have chosen Online OCR, but there are also many other websites that you can try if you are not comfortable with this one.

In the Privacy Policy they did mention that they will never see the content of the file which the user uploads, however, we will still not recommend using such services for extremely sensitive files.

Just go to the website and click on “Select File…” to upload the picture.

Choose the picture and click on “Open

You can also choose the language of the text which you would like to extract from the drop-down menu next to “Select File…” option. This is to increase the accuracy levels of the extracted text.

If you have more than just one image, then you will have to Sign Up to take advantage of additional features which involve extracting text from more than one image and some other useful features.

After a short while, you will see all the extracted text in a window below which you can then copy to paste anywhere or download the file as MS Word.
