JPG to Word is a free OCR software to convert JPG to Word document. This free OCR software extracts text from jpg images (scanned jpg images, online images, etc.) and lets you save that text as Word file (*.doc).
OCR (Optical Character Recognition), in simple terms, is a process to translate scanned/printed images into computer readable codes (ASCII code), which comes as human readable text as output.
This software is specifically used to fetch text from jpg and jpeg format images. But extracting text from images in exact format depends on the quality of text present in your jpg images. If text is of high quality with good contrast and brightness, then this software will be able to extract text easily.
In above screenshot, you could see text extracted from a sample jpg image using this free JPG to Word software.
This software is also helpful to extract text in different languages, including English, if input text is in same language as output language selected by you.
Note: JPG to Word also comes with an option to embed image to document. This option simply inserts a jpg image in a word document and lets you select size for that image (stretch, max height, max width, and auto size). As this task can be done manually as well so I didn’t find any special use of it. The main killer feature of this software is extraction of text from JPG files.
