What is Image Reader (OCR)?
Image Reader (OCR) is an intuitive Chrome extension that helps users convert any image into a readable text using the Tesseract OCR engine. With the options of selecting the OCR language, the Image Reader caters to a global audience. This extension fetches language data from GitHub, making it more efficient and lightweight.
To work with this addon, simply open the addon's interface and load your image via the file selector (top section). Before using the addon, please make sure to select the appropriate OCR language. Default OCR language is set to English.
Note: this addon uses the "https://github.com/naptha/tessdata/tree/gh-pages/" GitHub repo to fetch language data required for the OCR operation. Language data packs are very large and cannot be included in the addon package.
