This tutorial will explain how to search any word in printed document with Android phone camera. You can do that with the help of a free android app called “Find It“. You can simply open this app, enter the search term, and point the camera to the printed document. After that, it will automatically detect the word in the document and highlight it for you. The best part of this app is the accuracy of the word detection. It actually uses Google’s text recognition technology to help you get the accurate result. Another interesting feature is that you can search for multiple words at the same time.
Sometimes, you might stumble upon any word on a piece of printed document which you can’t find later. Then this app can help you easily scan that document and find the word as quickly as possible. That means you don’t have to go through the entire document again to find that particular word.
