Viz overview

Viz is a free and open-source app that enables you to swiftly extract text from images, videos, QR codes, and barcodes using a simple snip mechanism. The extracted text can then be automatically post-processed via shell commands — for example, the text can be read aloud using macOS's built-in speech engine.

Features
  • Viz is written in Swift language — making the app compact and efficient
  • Very quick extraction process
  • Copies to clipboard automatically, ready to paste
  • Post-processing option to execute shell commands when capture is taken. Can use the captured text via [ocr] token within the shell commands
  • Hotkeys CMD+Shift+1 and CMD+Shift+2 for starting a text or qr/barcode scan. These can be cleared out and custom hotkeys can be set by user
  • Shows copied text in a floating window, which can be set to auto-hide as well
  • Enable or disable line breaks in the extracted text
  • Append multiple text snippets to the clipboard by enabling Append option in Settings, otherwise it only holds one snippet at a time
  • Launch at login option
  • Custom auto-updater that pulls latest release notes and binaries from GitHub Releases (Viz should be ran from /Applications folder to avoid permission issues)

  • Fix foreground color in light mode - via #2
