Online OCR — How to use it
The OCR.space Online OCR service converts scans or (smartphone) images of text documents into editable files by using Optical Character Recognition (OCR). The OCR software also can get text from PDF.
Our Online OCR service is free to use, no registration necessary. Just upload your image files. The OCR software takes JPG, PNG, GIF images or PDF documents as input. PDF OCR supports multi-page documents and multi-column text. The only restriction of the free online OCR that the images/PDF must not be larger than 5MB. If you need to automate your OCR and process many documents, do not web-scrape this page. It is made for humans, not computers. Instead, please use the prov > free OCR API.
Supported OCR languages:
Arabic OCRChinese OCR (Simplified and traditional characters) Bulgarian OCR Croatian OCR Czech OCR Danish OCR Dutch OCR English OCR Finnish OCR French OCR German OCR Greek OCR Hungarian OCR Italian OCR Japanese OCR Korean OCR Norwegian OCR Polish OCR Portuguese OCR Russian OCR Spanish OCR Slovenian OCR Swedish OCR Turkish OCR
For best OCR results, select the correct OCR language for your document. Please do not feed hand-written documents to this converter. This OnlineOCR service, like any available OCR software, can only process printed documents. For the best results with images that contain only numbers (Number OCR), try Chinese or Korean as OCR language.

If you want to convert larger PDF documents without page and size limit you can subscribe to our PRO PDF plan . In addition to the PRO version of the API, this plan includes a custom OCR form just like the one on this page but without the page and size limits. So you can use the power of our PDF OCR solution even without using the OCR API directly, at no extra costs. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Welcome, students, workers from the office and staff of a large library!
Do you have a textbook or some kind of journal from which you need to get the text, but you have no time to print it yourself?
Our service will help you to get a text from a photo. After receiving the result, you can download the text and translate it through Google Translate, convert it to a PDF file, or save it in Word format.
OCR or Optical Character Recognition has never been so easy. All you need is to scan or take a photo of the text you need, select the file, and upload it to our text recognition service. If the image with the text was clear enough, you will receive recognized and readable text.
This service does not support hand-written texts.
