Copy, paste and translate text from any image, video or PDF.
Do you need to extract text from images, videos or PDF? If yes, then the Copyfish 🐟 free OCR software is for you.
Common reasons to extract text from images are if you want to google it, store it, email it or translate it. Until now, your only option was to retype the text. Copyfish 🐟 is soooo much faster and more fun.
“Images” come in all kinds of forms: photographs, charts, diagrams, screenshots, PDF documents, comics, error messages, memes, Flash – and Youtube movies.
You can verify the results in one glance with the extracted text overlay.
Copyfish 🐟 also supports Desktop OCR: Capture text from any image on your screen e. g. the error text within a messagebox.
Do you need to switch between OCR languages often? You can define "Quick Switch" buttons for up to three languages on the settings page.
Do you need to convert local images? If you check the “Allow access to file URLs” option for Copyfish, you can even drag and drop image files from your hard drive into a Chrome tab - and then select the text area to extract.
For Chrome extension gurus: You might have heard of Project Naptha, a great addon that applies state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image you see while browsing the web. Copyfish solves the same problem, but it takes a different user interface approach. It does not try to alter the website. Instead, it lets you mark the text in the image that you want to extract. As a result Copyfish 🐟 works with every website, even videos and PDF documents.
For developers: Copyfish 🐟 is published under the GPL open-source license. As OCR software, it uses the free OCR API from https://ocr.space/ .
