Free OCR - Extract Text from Images

Image to Text
Hi Dudes

We have seen the art of making Images using just ASCII characters: ASCII Art. Here I come up with a fantastic website that lets you to extract text from almost any images that contain some text. This will be useful to you in most of the situations where you should get or extract the text contents on images, photos or banners.

Optical Character Recognition
If you think of the concept of extracting text from an image, it would be some form of recognizing letters on the image using optical pattern reading. That is what called Optical Character Recognition (OCR). Certainly there should be a need of a device or machine that recognize the text. Okay! Now forget about whatever you thought of extracting text from images. There is an easy online solution to work for you.
Free OCR
This is a website with a free service of extracting text from your images. Whatever the image is, if it has something to read, this site will catch them for you. This is a free service offered, no need to register. Free OCR accepts either a JPG, GIF, TIFF, BMP or PDF. Here is a question that why do we need to extract text from a PDF file, while we have options to select and copy the text using Text tool. In case, you don't have PDF reader installed on your computer or your PDF file itself has some images in it! this will help you out. For PDF files, this service will extract text from the first page only.

Features and Restrictions
Free-OCR can handle images with multi-column text and also supports more languages: Bulgarian, Catalan, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese.

The only restriction is that the images must not be larger than 2MB, no wider or higher than 5000 pixels and there is a limit of 10 image uploads per hour.

Now, let's give a try with the site. This is the link to the site - .http://www.free-ocr.com/. I am going to upload an image containing some text, let's see the result. For instance, I take a screen shot of one of my posts on www.mysearchhistory.co.cc and upload to the Free-OCR. The uploaded image would be:
Extract Text from Images - Free-OCR

This is page where I upload the file, select English language, type the Captcha and click on 'Send File'.
Extract Text from Images - Free-OCR

This is the result page. Wow! This is excellent! Isn't it?
Extract Text from Images - Free-OCR

I am really amazed with this service online. Hope you will be using this for your needs. Happy sharing! 

Please post your comments. Thanks.

How to Make Conference Call in Google Talk

Call Conference
Hello Visitors

Today I come up with an excellent trick that everyone will like. I believe that this is going to be a wonderful way, you will enjoy surfing into my blog www.mysearchhistory.co.cc. I would explain this trick in details with complete demonstrative screenshots taken from my computer. The trick is making conference calls using Google Talk or Gtalk, Google's Gmail chat client or application. I know that everyone will have your Free Google Account. If you don't have Google Talk installed on your computer, please download and install it now from here. I don't think you can enjoy your chatting without a GTalk chat client. Read the complete post to implement this trick even on your Google Talk application.

Call Conferencing
Call conferencing is an important feature, not only on mobile phones, but also in online chat applications. Using this feature, you can call many friends or family members in a single voice chat. You make it connected with multiple persons. Unfortunately Google which provides various amazing features doesn't yet provide call conferencing feature on its GTalk chat client. However you can avail this feature using Multiple Google Talk Windows. Multiple Google Talk windows on same computer! Is that possible? Yes, of course. I have already explained about this in detail at 'How to Open Multiple Google Talk windows'. I suggest you to read that first before proceeding this trick. Because this trick is done using that trick. :)

Making Conference Calls in Google Talk
As you are aware, using Google Talk, you can make voice calls to your friends or relatives who are also connected using their account. Now let's learn to make conference voice calls using Google Talk.

Assumptions
Let's, suppose, consider three friends want to make conference call where they three join and talk. I assume the following:

  • Three friends are Anbu, Arun and Bala (considering three of my college friends in mind :) )
  • All the three friends have Google Talk installed on their computers.
  • They have their systems set up to make voice calls.
  • They are online now.
Here We Go
  1. Now each of the friends should open and login into two Google Talk windows (techies! as you guess, two instances of Google Talk :)) using the trick 'Opening Multiple Google Talk Windows'.  Assume that Anbu has two windows Anbu 1 and Anbu 2. Similarly Arun 1 & Arun2, Bala 1 & Bala 2 on their respective systems.
  2. In both the Google Talk windows, Referring the figure below, these three friends can make conference call if: Anbu 1 calls Arun 1, Anbu 2 calls Bala 1, then Arun 2 calls Bala 2.
Call Conference in Google Talk

The same way, any number of friends can be connected in conferencing by following the above trick.

How to Open Multiple Google Talk Windows

Google Talk Logo
Hello Visitors

I would like to bring you a trick over Gtalk or Google Talk, a most wanted chat client for Gmail account holders. Have you ever thought of pinging your friends from two IMs, but of same account? Have you ever thought of pinging your friends from different accounts, but from your one and only computer? This post will be helpful to do all these tricks. I make this post most illustrative by adding the snap-shots taken from my system. Continue your reading for learning the trick.


How to open two GTalk Windows from same Computer
Assuming that GTalk (Google Talk) is installed on your computer and you are working with it logging to your gmail account. If you try to open one more GTalk window, it won't open with the default settings. But if you slightly change the settings of the way how GTalk starts, you can open multiple GTalk windows. I suggest you two ways of doing this trick:

  1. Modifying the existing Google Talk shortcut
  2. Creating new Google Talk shortcut
Modifying the existing Google Talk Shortcut
Once the Google Talk is installed on your computer, you will see a GTalk shortcut on your desktop. If you can't see then leave this and proceed to my next suggestion. Now let's see how to we modify the existing shortcut. Here are the steps:
  1. Locate Google Talk shortcut on your desktop (or somewhere on your system) and right click on the icon, open 'Properties'. It will open a dialog box.
  2. In the opened dialog box, select tab 'Shortcut' and find a text box named Target where you can see the text "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe". Now clear whatever there after the this text and add /nomutex at the end.
  3. Press 'OK' to close the dialog box.
That's it! You can now open multiple Google Talk windows.

Creating new Google Talk Shortcut
This is the normal way to create a shortcut on Windows machines. Refer the following steps:

  1. Right click on your desktop, then select New > Shortcut from the pop-up menu.
  2. In the Create Shortcut dialog box, click 'Browse' button.
  3. Locate the googletalk.exe file from the installation folder (default is C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe)
  4. Add /nomutex at the end of the location text.
  5. Click 'Next'
  6. Set a name to new shortcut and click 'Finish' to create the shortcut.
Using this shortcut, you can now open multiple instances of Google Talk. You can login to multiple Google accounts.

Top Three Browsers for Java Enabled Mobile Phones

Hello All

Are you crazy about your mobile? Always interested to make your mobile interesting and much useful? I am such a person. I am always attempting to get most out of my mobile. I have already told about my present widgets in my welcome message. I am using mobiles for the past 7 years. I would like to bring you my experience over mobile searches. In the next few posts, I would explain you in details about the available mobiles, platforms, features, application support and troubleshooting, while this post is specific to Java Handsets.


About Java Mobiles
Java 2 Mobile Edition (J2ME) is the platform installed on most of the mobiles available today. J2ME is the customized Java environment for mobile devices with minimized features of regular Java. As Sun Microsystems Inc., tags "Java is Everywhere; even in your TV remote", Java is supported even in small embedded devices like TV remote with this J2ME platform. There are different profiles and configurations of J2ME as the advancement in mobile platform grows. You can learn more about it from internet. Google will help you. Let's proceed to next section.

About Java Applications
Java applications for mobile devices are developed from J2ME platform. There are many Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) available for the development of J2ME applications. I know very well about Netbeans, a free IDE from Sun Microsystems Inc, almost equally competitive to Microsoft's Visual Studio IDE features. J2ME applications are normally called MIDlets, programmatic name given to Java mobile applications. MIDlets are created as an executable Java ARchives (JAR files) which have file extensions '.jar'. MIDlets can be dowloaded from internet directly to the mobile devices using Java Application Descriptors (JAD). These files have extensions '.jad'. I think this gives you very basic idea about what the J2ME is and the JAR is. As I quoted earlier, do Googling for more stuff.

Mobile Browsers
Mobile browsers are applications on your mobile device that allows you to surf internet. As you guess, the three important requirements to connect internet from your mobile are:
  1. Your mobile service operator (provider) should offer you any of the mobile internet services like GPRS, EDGE or 3G.
  2. Your mobile handset should have enabled GPRS, EDGE or 3G facility.
  3. Your mobile should have a browser client.
Though all the mobiles are now coming with their own default browser clients, you can not find it much useful. You can not get the maximum from your mobile internet. That's why, many big developers showed interest to develop mobile browsers.

Top Three Mobile Browsers
To begin with the posts about Java mobile applications (MIDlets), I would like to tell you the tips and tricks on Java Mobile Browsers. I ranked these browsers based on the following metrics:
  • User Interface (Great Look <-> Poor Look)
  • Navigation (Easy <-> Hard)
  • Loading Pages (Faster <-> Slower)
  • Web View (Complete <-> Mobile View Only)
  • Data Usage (Low <-> High)
  • Multi-Tabs (Good <-> Fair/Not Available)
  • Save Pages (Good <-> Fair/Not Available)
  • Bookmarks (Good <-> Fair/Not Available)
  • Built-in Download Manager (Good <-> Fair/Not Available)
  • Auto-completing URLs (Good <-> Fair/Not Available)
1. Opera Mini
Opera Mini is developed by Opera. Opera Mini/Opera Mobile is the world's most popular award winning mobile browser for most of the mobile platforms, even for Apple iPhone and Google Nexus One. For java enabled phones, we have a MIDlet Opera Mini with various features.

Read more about Opera Mini at Opera Website.

Download Opera Mini
Opera Mini can be downloaded from internet to your PC or to your mobile directly. To download to PC, click here. To download to your mobile directly, visit m.opera.com from your mobile's default browser.

Note: To begin download, you should know about your mobile details like Brand and Model.

2. UCWEB

Read about it more here.

Download UCWEB
To download to your PC, click here. To download to your mobile directly, visit wap.ucweb.com from your phone's default browser.

3. BOLT

Tips and Tricks: ASCII Art Generator

Hello Dudes

Have you come across a situation where you can not read some text as required font is not installed on your system? What will be the solution in such case to read your text?

Above are the questions asked by a lecturer in my college days. He explained further about this with a solution: Save your text as an image by taking screen-shots. It sounds great, right? Now I would tell you a trick on viewing your images using notepad. Do you think how it is possible? It is really possible with the help of ASCII Art Generator. Continue reading for further details.

What is ASCII?
The American Standard Code for Information Interchange (acronym: ASCII; pronounced /ˈæski/, ASS-kee) is a character-encoding scheme based on the ordering of the English alphabet. ASCII codes represent text in computers, communications equipment, and other devices that use text. Most modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII, though they support many more characters than did ASCII.

The 95 printable ASCII characters are given below:

Read more about at ASCII here.

ASCII Art Generator
It is a little program that converts your picture to ASCII text art - a jumble of letters, numbers and symbols that do not appear to have any significance until you step back and look at the whole picture. It has no practical purpose, other than the neat factor.

My Search History
After a little searching through Google, I came across to surf a wonderful website where I find lot of other fun stuffs with text. I took Linux logo for the demonstration purpose.

Here is the original image taken over internet:

Here is the ASCII Art created using the website:

You can find the text for this example image here.

Google's Interest on ASCII Art
When I did googling about "ASCII Art", I noticed an interesting result from Google. In that search, Google's default logo located left to the search box turned to an ASCII Art. This is pretty interesting, right? Just see the below image:

ASCII Art Generator Website
This is the site used for generating ASCII Text Image from normal: http://ascii.mastervb.net/
It has various other features like converting your text to ASCII character fonts, much useful to have different styles of your text.


Tips to Create ASCII Arts
One of the drawbacks of the website is that it doesn't allow us to upload our images to the site for creating ASCII arts. But you can make it possible by uploading your images temporarily or permanently to some external sites. My choice is http://tinypic.com/ where you can upload images even anonymously. Then use the URL given for your image to create ASCII Art.

Hope that you find lot of other fun stuffs here.
