Capture2Text (Windows) - Captures text from photos

Everyone knows you can't select the text you see in a photo onscreen. So what do you do when you need to copy it? You're certainly not going to type it out by hand! Here's an easier(?) way to grab the text in photos on your computer screen - OCR it!

Capture2Text is an open-source tool designed to use optical character recognition to read the text in a graphic on your screen and pop the result into a little editable window for any corrections that are needed (machines aren't perfect!). You can then copy it to your clipboard and paste it wherever your heart desires.

I found it a little tricky to get the hang of, but as you can see below, it works!
