Slightly related question...

Is there a Windows tool for searching text within images in a directory. So basically OneNote/Evernote type functionality working on files in the searched folder/drive. I have had a few situations in the last few months where this could have saved me a lot of time.

You say the next version of ScreenshotCaptor will have full integration of OCR with its scanning technology?
