Sometimes depending upon the requirement of some people they may want to copy the text from images and paste it in a word document or somewhere else depending upon the requirement. It is rather easy to type text into the document but in case you are copying the text from the images which are slides or scanned images or full of text only then you may prefer to copy the text rather than type it yourself. Today I have got an application named GT Text which will help you to copy the text from the images.
The application is a freeware and will help you to copy the text in an image to the Windows clipboard. The application supports a large number of image formats like BMP, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and PNG. You simply have to open an image from which you want to filter the text in the GT Text software by choosing the correct filter in the software. After the image has opened you will have to make a rectangle around the text that you want to copy then the application will show you the text that it has interpreted from the selected giving you three options what to do with the text i.e. Cancel, Try Again and Continue.
This is the first window which will open when you will run the software for the first time after downloading and installing it. The toolbar option present in the application are File, Edit, View, Image, XML, Tools and Help. The application also has an Icon bar and image bar just below the toolbar. The Icon bar contains options like New, Open, Save, Cut, Copy, Paste, Print and Copy Image Text. The image bar has options like Zoom, Copy text tool and various other options which will help you to select the section of the image from which you want to extract the text.
The File menu has options like New, Open, Save, Save As, Print, Preferences and many more.
The Edit Menu has normal options that an edit menu contains like Undo, Redo, Cut, Copy, Paste and many more.
The View menu has options like Toolbar, Image Bar, Status Bar, Point Status, Zoom Bar and many more. The Toolbar, Image Bar, Status Bar, Point Status are selected by default.
The Image menu has options like Show Shade, Show Outline, Show Core and info.
The XML menu has only two options Undo and redo.
The Tools menu has options like Pixel Select, Region Select, Zoom Select, Invert and many more.
