Imagetotext.info is a reliable tool for extracting text from inside an image. It is a freemium tool, and free users can use it without any requirements. This includes creating an account or providing any other sort of personal information.
Free users get access to the entire tool, and their only restrictions are the number of images they can input at once, and the max size of one image. Premium users can upload up to fifty images at once and each image can have a maximum size of 5 MB.
In this article, we are going to check out if Imagetotext.info is good enough at copying text accurately from images. To test that out, we are going to use two different images. One image will have text in a digital font, while the other will have handwritten text.
So, let’s check it out.
For the purpose of testing, we have used some sample text from one of our own blog posts. This is a passage from the post titled “How Many Backlinks do You Need to Rank on Google?”. We took a screenshot of a small section of the post to use as the image with the digital font. We also converted the same text into handwriting for testing.
Here’s what the images look like:
Now, let’s begin our testing.
1. Testing With Digital Font Image
Utilizing Imagetotext is surprisingly simple. Here are the steps you need to follow to use it.
- Navigate to the Imagetotext webpage
- Copy and paste your image into the tool
- Alternatively, simply upload the image, or provide its URL
- Wait for the tool to give the output
And that’s it.
Here is what that looks like.
Inputting the Image
This is the normal state of the tool when no input has been provided.
Once you upload an image the interface changes and shows a small preview of your image.
Getting the Output
Once the input image has been provided the tool will take a few seconds to process the image and extract text from it.
While the image is being processed, you can see the following image:
After one or two seconds, the tool will provide the extracted text in the result box as shown below:
From this image, we can gather a few things;
- The text extraction is approximately 99% accurate as there is only one mistake—the word “many” is misplaced.
- Users can easily copy the text with one button
- Users can easily download the text with one button
This tells us that Imagetotext is indeed capable of copying text accurately from an image, so long as the text in the image is using a digital font.
This is really good and speaks volumes about the capability and accuracy of this tool. But let’s see if it holds up against handwriting as well.
1. Testing with Image of Handwritten Text
Now, we will test Imagetotext with an image of handwritten text. You have already seen what the handwriting looks like earlier in the article. Let’s see if the tool is able to hold its own or not.
Inputting the Image
We provided the input the same way as we did earlier and this is the preview that the tool shows:
From the preview, you can see that it is indeed the handwritten text that has been provided as input. After a few seconds of processing the tool will provide the output.
Getting the Output
This is what the output of the image with handwriting looks like:
From the output we can gather a few things:
- The tool is capable of recognizing handwritten text in an image
- The accuracy is unaffected
- The text extraction is approximately 99% accurate (again).
From the results that we obtained after testing Imagetotext.info on two images—one with digital font, and one with handwriting—we can reach the following conclusion.
Imagetotext is capable of copying text from an image with remarkable accuracy. So, the answer to the title is a resounding “Yes”.
That’s all that needs to be said, and we hope you utilize Imagetotext for your benefit without any issues.
