You can’t just copy and paste all your problems away, especially when it comes to images. But with TextSniper, even images are no match for your one-two Command+C Command+V combo. You can purchase a lifetime subscription today for just $3.99.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 on the App Store, TextSniper lets you pull any text you see on the screen into a text document. That includes scans, screenshots, pictures, graphics, and even videos. That app accomplishes this using optical character recognition (OCR), so you don’t have to painstakingly transcribe text to a Word document by hand.
Then, you can use TextSniper to convert text into speech, which might come in handy if you’re having trouble reading a particularly dense passage. The app supports numerous languages, too, including English, Spanish, Chinese, and more.
For a limited time, Macworld readers can get lifetime access to TextSniper for Mac for just $3.99 or 32% off.
