pica text is OCR made simple. We included just the functionality you need - nothing that might distract you. That helps focusing on the important things and saves you a lot of time. You need to get the text out of an image or from anywhere on your screen? With picatext this is as easy as selecting a file or a screen area. So now you can get the text you need in almost no time. No need to tediously typewrite everything again.


  • Get text from images
