OCR in Google --translate images into text easily

Posted

Google Docs has given OCR a front and center WOW. Take an image document, save to drive, hit your applications key (that key that is between your start menu and ctrl on a desktop) and open with google docs. Wait for Google to take it through the OCR process, do a ctrl a to select all, copy with ctrl c and paste with ctrl v into word. Hit the ctrl key, which takes you into paste options and hit t for keep text only. That is it--that easy. If you can get the document electronically, you can send it through to drive and OCR that image into text.

Set up computer correctly so talking software works great

Posted

The constant question I get is: "Why does my computer not work well with my talking software." Especially at the start of a school year when new computers are bought for students.

I can tell you the majority of the time is because all the configurations are incorrect on the computer. Once you set up your computer correctly, the talking software will run smoothly and great. Minus the times when something is trying to update and it slows your talking software to a crawl or freezes it up.
