Capture2Text enables language learners to do the following:

■ Optical Character Recognition (OCR) - Allows the user to quickly snapshot a small portion of the screen, OCR it and (by default) save the result to the clipboard.
■ Speech Recognition - Using speech recognition the user can speak into their microphone and Capture2Text will convert the speech to text. If the speech recognition technology is not 100% sure, Capture2Text will present the user with a list of the most likely transcriptions. The selected result will (by default) be copied to the clipboard.

I downloaded the application and all I could see is a couple AHK (AutoHotKey) files and a .c (C) source code file.

I got really excited that someone had pushed the boundaries with AutoIt :mrgreen: but it appears to be a wrapper for a couple of utilities, one of which is the very famous >> http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/

Yup, you are correct. http://sourceforge.net/projects/capture2text/ mentions AutoIt for programming language. I did not bother to check the SourceCode folder. Feels kinda stupid now :oops: . Well, we know at least what gets guinness excited :P .

You've found my Kryptonite.

I don't blame you, just can't understand how the developer could get both languages mixed up like that, the syntax isn't even the same.

I have to comment that this is the best free OCR software ever, portable up to 100% cuz it wrote in Autohotkey language, support nhocr and tesseract engine, if who want to use GOCR, it is very easy to add GOCR support to this software.

Only ConvertImageFormat.exe wrote in C, because it is a plugin of this software.

Version 2.5: http://sourceforge.net/projects/capture ... Text_v2.5/

The author still update this software, so sweet!

Was this ever submitted? Can't find anything in the DB. Looks useful, and I've heard works well.

Hello & Thanks ,
I downloaded and am running Download Capture2Text_v3.7.zip
I left the prefs as is .
But when I click win +q over a screen area
I don't get any blueBox .
The window which my cursor is over
goes dimmer , and when I click another win +q
the window gets brighter again . But nothing gets copied to the cipboard .
I didn't realize til just now that this pgm is autoit .
Does that mean that I need to install autoit to get this thing working ?
I was hoping to use this gadget in place of GetWindowText program , which does'nt work very well .

Thanks..Vern

No, you do not need Autoit to run Capture2Text BUT you definitely to go through the "readme" document.

v3.8 is out (sort of old news as it arrived back in January)

I realized I was doing a bunch of OCR work via OneNote, which is not a program I'm fond of. As a result, I came back to this program first mentioned on FWG a long time ago.

Some related links:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-too ... Text.shtml
http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-ti ... om-images/

Extract Steps:

Download the ZIP file and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Capture2Text.exe

Basic Usage (from the Readme):

    1) Position your mouse at the top-left corner of the text that you want to OCR.

    2) Press the OCR key (by default the Windows Key + Q) to begin an OCR capture.

    3) Move your mouse to resize the blue box over the text that you want to OCR.

    4) Press the OCR key again or left-click to complete the OCR capture. The OCR'd text can be pasted to any text file.
