(Archived) Text recognition in pictures/PDF's does not work...

Recommended Posts

I keep hearing about the text recognition being so cool in evernote but i have yet to see it work in my evernote...

I've tried importing a PDF and a JPEG images and text in both are not recognized. The JPEG image is was a MS Word document so it should have no problem recognizing it...

Do i have to show evernote where the text is located on the pictures and PDF's? I just have the basic (free) version...do i have to upgrade to get this feature working?

We don't process images within PDF documents (yet). You should be able to search for text within a JPEG file after it has been processed, however. This takes anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the platform you're using.

Computer screen-shots are frequently harder to process than "real" images and scans of text because of the odd artifacts that make fonts appear on a screen. Try taking a JPEG image of a billboard or book cover and see if that works after a few minutes instead.
