Is there a screenshot reader similar to ABBYY Screenshot Reader (you are just selecting area on the screen and getting text into the buffer, something like that)?

    Could you clarify the question ? Yo are looking for utility that will combine taking screenshots and then doing some sort of OCR so you can get editable text ? – Kassym Dorsel Nov 1 '11 at 23:05

  • Get yourself some OCR software and set up folder actions to run screenshots thru the OCR after you take them. – Kassym Dorsel Nov 2 '11 at 14:21

how about using FreeOCR? It works for PDF files, TIFF images and can turn image to word file.

  • Might help if it wasn't Windows only - or do you have a Mac link? – Tetsujin Dec 16 '15 at 12:01

    oh, sorry, you may search Prizmo, it works on Mac, but it's not for free. – William Ryan Dec 17 '15 at 7:35
