Project Naptha, a free Google Chrome browser extension developed by Kevin Kwok. Now you can copy and even translate texts inside images you find on the Internet.
Project Naptha uses a series of optical character recognition (OCR) algorithms that include libraries developed by Microsoft and Google. These algorithms and libraries quickly build a model of text regions, words and letters in nearly any image there is.
You can download Natpha in the Google Chrome Web Store and install it like any other extension. Once successful, you just hover your cursor over any available image that has text in it and select what you want to copy. You can copy the selection. This is amazing for graphic designers who want to copy texts from images sent to them by clients. Regular users can also use this in case someone sends them a scanned document. This saves a lot of time because the user doesn’t have to re-type everything.
