Works Better Than Google Tranlator

When I try using Google Translate to translate a web page with a link inn it, Google say that the linked page is not valid. But, when I use the iText to translathe same page, it will translate the whole page and the also translates the link on the page also. Works Very Well!! Love it.

Wonderful ORC Product!

Conclusion: Recognition is good in general but need tiny adjustment. Handwriting recognition should be improved.

To be frank, I’m a loyal user of Mr. Zheng’s product family. And this new product “iText" really amaze me.
To back it firmly, I did some test. From easy to hard are word typed in onenote, image from google image and handwriting in onenote.
It performs English recognition outstandingly. I just tried using it in my onenote notes, with Helvetica Neue as well as times new roman. the result is good but it could be better. quite often the app mis-recognized the case of the word like “Modeling a project” to “MOdeling a project”. Besides, it fails to recognize return symbol “\n” and space symbol.

As for image recognition, that’s perfect, except you have to do some little revise manually. And the “little” is really “little” within human’s scale lol.

However, when it comes to handwriting recognition, the test result is far from satisifying… It even recognized some symbols as Chinese characters, that’s funny. But I still can see its potentiality.

Anyway, it is still a good app, as before, as always.

Hi, glad to know you like iText :)

To be honest, the recognition work is done by Google. iText mainly work on optimizing the result from Google, e.g., remove extra space, capitalize the first letter, etc. And you're right, Google's handwriting ability isn't that good now.

imho the subscription is very much worth it :)

There’s not many examples where technology is designed so well that it becomes seamless and almost no improvements can be made. This app is one of the few examples. There I a couple small details that I might change but when I really think about it I wouldn’t! I need content to be read to me to learn material for school, there are many ways to do that but when all else fails, this app has my back to convert it into text!
