    Do you need to digitize any printed text so you can maintain a soft copy of it? After all, there are a lot of advantages to going paperless. If so, all you need is an optical character recognition (OCR) tool.

    1. Google Keep

    Instructions for text extraction:

    Add a new note and tap on the + icon.
    Select Take photo to scan a document from the camera or select Choose image to import an image from your Gallery.
    Open the picture, tap on the three-dot overflow menu and select Grab image text.

    2. Text Scanner [OCR]

    Instructions for text extraction:

    Tap on the blue shutter button to capture and scan the document. Alternatively, you can also import an existing image by clicking on the Gallery icon.

    3. Text Fairy

    Instructions for text extraction:

    Tap on the Camera icon to capture an image.

    Alternatively, tap on the Gallery icon to import a picture from the Gallery.

    Choose the image section you’d like to scan. Tap on the forward arrow to proceed.

    Select whether the layout of the document is one-column or two-column.

    Choose the language of the text.
    Finally, tap Start.

    If everything goes alright, the text should be extracted and you can now edit or copy it to anywhere you like.

    4. Office Lens
    Instructions for text extraction

    Open Office Lens and point the camera to the document you wish to scan. It automatically detects the section of the image with text, but you can manually adjust it. Press the Camera shutter button.
    Tap Save.
    In the “Save to” section, check Word document and tap the Check icon.

    5. OCR Text Scanner

    Instructions for text extraction:

    Tap the Camera icon to scan a document. To import a document from the gallery, tap on the three-dot overflow button and then tap Import.
    Select the language of the document and tap Grab Image Text.
    It should display the extracted text. You can easily copy or share the text from here.
