It is possible that on some occasion you have needed to share the text you have in a paper manual or an advertisement, but you have not known how to do this beyond taking a photo with your smartphone. If you want to go one step further and achieve something that is editable, one of the applications that exist to achieve this is Image to Text. We show what this development for Android offers.
The work we are talking about has something that we liked a lot: it is really easy to use it and, in addition, the compatibility it offers with the different terminals is very great. Therefore, in seconds it is possible to know exactly what has to be done with Image to Text to take advantage of it. In addition, with a terminal with 2 GB of RAM, the execution is excellent. Good work is done by developers.
With a very intuitive interface since there is nothing that can confuse, there is something that should be corrected in this development: it is not translated. It is true that there is not a great dependence on the text that makes up the application, but at some moments it would be appreciated if the software were completely localized. By the way, we have verified that the operation of the terminal does not suffer when carrying this work installed or leaving it in the background since it hardly consumes resources, which is always positive.
Something that caught the attention of Image to Text at first is that it does not offer a Settings section. At first, this seemed like a mistake to us since we assumed that there were not very few customization options. But, with the continued use of the application, we realized that for what it is created it is not necessary to offer more than it has … so this is finally considered a success. The case is that you will not be able to vary anything in what has to do with the use and the way of working … the development is as it is, that simple.
Use and Efficiency When Using Image to Text
When working with an image there are two options that work offers. To use both you have to do the same: click on the icon with the « + » symbol in the central area of the interface. You simply find a jewel to choose between using the year that is already stored or using the smartphone or tablet camera (permits are required for them, which can be granted without risk). Once this is done, a new screen appears in which you can adjust the area of the image that you want to convert into editable text since only what you see is what you will work with.
Next, use the buttons shown in the lower area. The first is the one that makes use of another image … and if what you want is to start the process, you have to click on Recognize Image. This takes a time that varies depending on the amount of existing text and the power of the terminal. But this action usually does not take more than half a minute. When the processing is finished, a blue screen is displayed with the converted text that can be selected regularly in the Android operating system to choose the one that fits us, there is even an option that allows you to directly share everything you have acquired. Everything is that simple.
Surely now you wonder about the reliability of the results. And the truth is that Image to Text has room for improvement. It is true that with English everything works more or less well with some flaws that are understandable. But, with Spanish, the houses are not perfect and there is a failure rate of 40% and this is something to keep in mind. One detail: if there are many images in the document, things are even worse … so this is something to consider.
Image to Text, Install This Application on your Android
Getting this development is very simple and reliable since it is possible to download it from the Galaxy Apps store (we leave the link after this paragraph) at no cost. With simple use and without being too demanding in what has to do with hardware, this development is a possibility that we should not rule out to do something that the Android operating system itself does not provide by default. Trying it is something that is not crazy.
