Accurate but slow

It converted an image to text rather quickly and very accurately with only one mistake for a book page. Problem was in the editing. I wanted to remove some erroneous spacing. The act was painfully slow. It would've been faster to copy the text and edit it elsewhere. This seems more like a bug than a design issue. Look forward to future versions!

I love this app! Yeah, you are limited to one page at a time... Try typing your pages!

At first I thought it was poor with photos of text, but after working with it a bit I was able to get very good results. Be sure the contrast is good, that there are a fair number of pixels per character frame, and the copy is fairly flat.

If the copy is curved adjust the corners of the text frame, the app will then have an idea how how to compensate for the curvature.

My only request would be for sticky langage specification - I get tired of respecifying the language every time I enter the app. I often work with Spanish.

I have never used the internal edit, So I can't comment on that.

This works Great

I just needed an app that I can scan to text. This worked to my satisfaction I recommend it. Those who are giving it 1 & 2 stars I don't know why. But this works, be ready to do a little adjustment to your text though. This is a computer system so you can't expect it to do stuff like humans do
