Custom Screenshot/OCR software
« on: May 25, 2020, 07:15 AM »
Hi everybody

I'm looking to have a custom screenshot/OCR programme written if possible.  Basically I need to take a screenshot, OCR the text and display it in a certain format.

However, I'm completely new to this - is there anyone here that would be willing to assist? I would be willing to pay for the service provided.

Many thanks
Lewis

That kind of software already exists, as is to be expected: http://capture2text.sourceforge.net/

And there is of course Screenshot Captor that allows you to automate the process, but you'll need to add some OCR software (free or paid, it should support command-line conversion, but most do) to your system, and configure it in SC to run after taking a screenshot.

Output format(s) is heavily dependent on what the OCR software supports.

If you happen to be using AutoHotkey, there are two scripts you could use and/or modify to suit your needs:

Vis2 - Image to Text OCR() @ https://www.autohotk....php?f=6&t=36047

OCR with UWP (Windows 10) @ https://www.autohotk....php?f=6&t=72674

Did not realize that screenshot captor could do this.
