iOS application that reads text in Facebook photos

iOS & iPadOS

Hi. I am looking for an iOS app that will read text and Facebook photos. I know Facebook uses the all photo text description but it does not read text in the photos. I apologize if this is confusing. Thanks for your help.

I have 2 apps that I use. Ordinarily, I'd recommend Braigo Companion. But, they're having major issues at this time.

But, I finally found a replacement after pretty entensive searching. It's a free download, that's pretty amazing for a free app. I'll post a link to the app in another comment, but I'll give you the name (please forgive any misrememberances as the name is quite long). It's called: OCR. can take text from a photo. You'll need to save the photo by double tapping and holding and clicking on the button that says save photo. Then you just go to your gallery, select the photo and you're done!

The link I'll post is a link to this app's entry in the ios. app directory on here. I hope you found this helpful, and look for the comment with the link.

Hello again! Here's a link to the entry in the app directory on AppleVis. One thing I will contion is that the app does have ads, but they are VERY unintrusive. They're at the very bottom of the app after all the buttons (of which jhere are only 3). Please try this app. It will not totally replace Braigo at least I don't think so, but this app a beautiful app for what you want to do. You can also do the obvious thing and take a fic within the app also. Good luck and hope this helps!…
