@athegn You have to use a 3rd party product. My recommendation is - either you install the apps and readout locally or you upload to and after some time you will have a more or less satisfactory result.


Or send a feature request to text

FreeOCR works fine

Also, If you use Google Drive you can upload a jepeg or or pdf and then right click it and choose "open as a google document".

Dive will use OCR to convert it to an editable Google Doc.

Both are free.
