This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
ABBYY TextGrabber easily and quickly digitizes fragments of printed text, reads QR codes and turnes the recognized result into actions: call, write, translate into 100+ languages, search in the Internet or on maps, create events on the calendar, edit, voice and share in any convenient way.

What's New in Version 6.2
We’ve made some improvements and fixed small bugs. Major since the previous release:
+ Improved recognition of line and paragraph breaks as well as hyphenation of words, which helps preserve the original layout and makes the text much easier to read and translate.
+ Innovative real-time OCR technology let you capture text directly from your camera screen, without the need to take a photo or crop it.
We are looking forward to your reviews and suggestions. Your feedback is very useful both to us, the developers, and to other users of the app.
I am quite pleased with this and it's nice if you want to look up a question on a worksheet for help but don't want to type it out yourself.
The reading of the words is actually pretty accurate (as long as you hold the camera straight). It used to be more sensitive, but they have updated the app to be more precise and effective.
Great app and completely worth downloading. This is a must-have.
Glad I purchased this
Sometimes when I want to select text on my iPhone I can't because it's not selectable
That's where this application comes in
I take a screenshot of it then I accessed the photo in this up and crop it and then this app will OCR it and I will copy the text and paste it somewhere else.
It works great 😎👍🏻
Very useful App
I use TextGrabber in order to copy printed text and transfer it to my computer. This is necessary for my job as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired. To have to type everything I need to transfer to braille is very time consuming. TextGrabber makes the process much smoother and quicker.
