Microsoft Office OneNote allows you to convert an image to text without OCR software. This feature has been in OneNote for a very long time but only few knew about it.
- Launch OneNote and create a new page or navigate to an existing page.
- Copy and paste the image to the page which has the text content.
- Right click on the image and select “Copy Text from Picture”.
- Paste it to the destination where you want the text.
Note: The character recognition works better with typed text than handwritten content.
