Sometimes we want to copy text from images. The simple method that we use to copy text is by manually writing whole text from images in a notepad. This method is reliable only if we have to copy only few words but what if we have a large paragraph to copy from images? Manually writing whole text will consume a lot of our precious time. So here is a freeware application JOCR which enables users to convert images to text files easily.
