JOCR Reviews

Text recognition from screenshots

Jing and GreenShot have no OCR text recognition function from screenshots.

On there is no information, that FastStone Capture has an OCR-function although it is not free.

If you need a free portable OCR text recognition app, you need JOCR.

JOCR has the ability to recognize selectable many languages, the user interface however is only english.
If you have the commercial ABBYY Finereader you have as a free add-on the ABBYY ScreenShot reader, which is very good, but is not free and not portable.
