Photo Reader overview

With Photo Reader, you can get the text from any photo or image. Using the app, you select a photo or make a photo of a text document and then the app will very quickly present you the text from the photo. You can then copy the text to use it somewhere else or you can send the text in a text message or email.

The camera of your Mac is also supported. Just hold a document in front of the camera and Photo Reader will get the text for you.
