Question for the foum(s):
What is the software that automatically scans photos and extracts text on the fly as a database search? The images don't need to be scanned and OCRd.

I read about this when browsing, sometime within the last month or so, and, maddeningly, I cannot find any trace of it now - in bookmarks or scrapbook, and it does nor show in my Google Desktop search. The idea of this software was that you could get rid of paper after taking photos of it - anything, such as receipts, documents, whiteboards, for example - and the text was identified with some new OCR-like technology.

At the time, I didn't think I could use it. Now I think I could.

Has anyone seen or read about this software? I have a feeling it was freeware to individuals. (Thanks.)

Evernote  will do this.  Hope this helps.

That was the one - Evernote.
Many thanks, Grorgy.
