Hello. I'm looking for an ios app that can read what's on an image such as a text. I've got an email that contains text inside of a picture. Any solution?
Hi, Prizmo, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/prizmo-scanning-ocr-speech/id366791896?mt=8 is one of the best apps I've found for doing this. You can import images into it, run OCR and get readable text which you can then export as text or pdf, email, or open in any other application that handles those formats. At $9.99, I find it pays for itself many times over if that is something you find yourself needing to do often. It is also possible to import scanned pdf's and run OCR on those. Applevis has some great resources on how to use prizmo. Hope this helps, Tangela
Thanks Tangella - was wondering whether I should give Prismo a go and that's made up my mind! :)
I'm glad to hear that. I hope it works out well for you. Please let me know if you have any questions about using it and I'll try to answer them, or direct you to the answers if they're already available.
Thanks Angella, I think I'll have a go at it tomorrow and see how I get on, will try not to plague you with too many questions!
