OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition, simply, reading text from images!

You can now take a picture of a recipe in magazines, newspapers and print outs, use our box tool to select the title, steps and ingredients on the page (we find the other bits automatically for you) and our clever recipe scanner tool will convert your picture into text. 

This does sometimes require a little text editing after the conversion has been completed to correct any characters the tool has confused with another.
