Capture text with a photo and transfer it to a computer
Thursday, 22 October 2009 - ABBYY FotoReader software allows you to take images of text with your digital camera or mobile phone – such as pages from library books and notices – and turn them into workable ‘live’ electronic format on your PC.
Take a picture of any text, connect the camera or mobile phone to your PC, and FotoReader quickly scans, captures and converts the text image into text files – Microsoft Word and Excel - or into PDF format. The text can then be edited in the usual way.
FotoReader is sold in the UK by Software Paradise, an extensive online software source for users of business and home software. Software Paradise carries 38,000 software lines. If you can’t find what you are looking for, Software Paradise will find it for you!
Typical FotoReader users are:
- Business people looking for a quick way of capturing key information from documents, business cards etc
Students and teachers – it saves taking notes, photocopying or scanning
- Travellers who find interesting texts on signs, in newspapers etc
- Home users wanting to capture interesting news snippets, advertisements, recipes or historical notes in museums
ABBYY FotoReader is the only software on the market of this type. It is simple to use, highly compatible and offers a ‘green’ alternative to photocopying.
An additional application - ABBYY Screenshot Reader - allows you to create screenshots and capture text which can be saved, edited or sent by e-mail. ABBYY Screenshot Reader is free when you register a copy of FotoReader.
