How do I convert an image to text?

Answered by Greg Port

This is how to turn a page of text from a book, flyer, paper etc into editable text in Microsoft Word - very handy!


Here is the workflow:
  1. Capture an image of the page on your phone or computer
  2. Make sure that image is one your computer (you may need to email it or put it in OneDrive etc)
  3. Drag the image onto a blank Word Doc
  4. Save the Word Doc as a PDF
  5. Open the PDF doc in Word
Obviously a TON of applications here! Grabbing a favourite passage to analyse in OneNote, being able to use immersive reader etc etc.
