> Online Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Just a few lines on OCR for those who are not familiar with it. OCR viz Optical Character Recognition is a smart piece of software that can extract TEXT from an image or a similar file and provides it in an editable format. You can then Copy/Paste the output into your favorite text editor.

Almost all recent scanners have an inbuilt OCR that can manage an image to text conversion, but what if you wish to perform OCR on an image file that you received in mail. You obviously won't print the document and then scan it again to get the Text right :)

As always, there is a solution for this. The easiest method would be doing it online. Just visit OnlineOCR

    dripping even after the faucet is shut off, it may be time to hire a plumber to double check everything.

    The truth is, there are MANY variables that
    affect this decision, not the least of which is just how much trust you put in a synthetic oil to offer enhanced
    protection and possibly extended oil drains. According to the oil manufacturers, it is generally suggested that you
