Have you ever found yourself in a situation where the PDF file online does not allow text to be copied? Or, have you come across content online so inspiring that you wanted to copy, but the content is on either an image or video? So, what choice do you have other than typing the text out in an editor? We are sure you have been in such a situation more than once.
An unimaginable amount of data is available in digital formats such as images, videos, and PDFs from which you cannot copy the desired text. The right question is how to extract this seemingly useful data from these files.

In a nutshell, Quixy Toolbox is an extension on the Chrome web store capable of intelligently extracting text from images, videos, and web pages right on the browser while browsing. Toolbox employs Optical character recognition (widely known as OCR) technology to identify the text, recognize and then extract it. And the great part is, it is free for everyone to use. You do not have to be a Quixy user to use our Quixy Toolbox.
Toolbox is capable of recognizing and extracting 75+ languages beyond English. Toolbox has you covered in Japanese, traditional Chinese, French, or Hindi.
Optical Character Recognition or OCR uses technology that recognizes text within a digital document. Very commonly known as a picture-to-text or image-to-text converter, OCR allows you to extract text from images and scanned documents.
For example, when you scan a paper document, the resulting file is an image in most cases. When this image or file is provided as an input to the OCR-enabled tool, the tool recognizes the text in the document and extracts the text to an editable format.
No. Quixy Toolbox is free for life for all, and you do not need an account on Quixy to explore.
Quixy Toolbox does not save any data. Processes such as text detection and extraction are all done on your browser. The annotated image and the extracted data are never saved for training purposes.
Quixy Toolbox is available from Chrome Webstore, you can add it from here.
