Free-OCR.com: Extract text from images

Have you ever needed to edit an old document that only exists on paper, or had a friend ask you to send them a copy of something in an email? You probably delayed the task or made an excuse to not type the whole document into your computer. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) can do the work for you. Just scan the document into your computer as an image and then upload it to Free-ocr.com. It will take a moment to read the text and then provide you with the results that you can copy and paste into Word. Be sure to proofread your document before sending it to others so that unprofessional errors do not appear. Also, I do not know if they store info or use a secure connection- don’t upload anything with extremely sensitive information.
