  • Desktop OCR
    If you seek something simple, non-commandline, easy to use and with a GUI, then Capture2Text is the best I know so far. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Is there a good/accurate OCR/Text to Image program available?
    Capture2Text is FOSS. It uses Tesseract as it's OCR engine, which is great as you can use different language data files to find the one that is the most accurate for your purposes. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • It finally arrived - time to join the spreadsheet club and immerse myself in this final reverie...
    Capture2Text is the simplest solution and it works surprisingly well with the Cold Steel/Hajimari text boxes... Once it runs in the background press a previously assigned hotkey and select the area on the screen to be captured. I recommend deactivating its popup window, you just want the text to be copied into the clipboard. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Translate Text on screen with out highlighting it - Translate text in game or streaming video if paused
    You should have a look at Capture2Text and ShareX. They offer OCR translation (ShareX links to google translator in your browser, when you do OCR Translation, I think). - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
