How to use the Docsumo Chrome OCR Extension?

To start using the Docsumo Google Chrome OCR extension immediately, do this:-

  • Visit the Chrome Web Store on your Android or Desktop.
  • Search for the Docsumo Free OCR Software Chrome Extension.
  • Download and install the extension on your Chrome web browser.
  • Select Capture Selected Area.
  • Draw a bounding box around the portion of the screen you want to cover. This will convert your scanned images or region as editable text.
  • A text editor window will pop up. It will display the converted text captured from your selected portion.
  • If you want to capture the entire visible screen and not just a specific portion, select the Capture Visible Area option next time you run the Docsumo OCR Google Chrome Extension.

Fair use only

We believe that the tool should be used for fair purposes only and that’s why Docsumo’s screenshot reader limits the number of screenshots to 30 screenshots per hour in order to avoid getting used for malicious purposes. We have no intention to offer a premium version of this tool with an extended limit as of now.

Conclusion

Docsumo’s Google Chrome OCR extension gives you a bonus option to translate your converted text into different languages. You can set your language preferences and translate text captured in English to Spanish, Italian, German, etc.
