Transcribe Notes From Pictures For Free

Have you ever needed to transcribe notes from pictures for free? Most people take a photo of the text and then manually transcribe it but I’m here to get you some sweet, sweet efficiency gains bro!

Let me introduce you Google Keep on Desktop and Mobile.

Using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Keep can transcribe text from pictures for you, so you don’t have to worry about typing up notes from a meeting or whiteboard session. – Google

Just take a photo, select “Grab Image Text” and Keep will transcribe your note.

Making Your Look Good

As you can see, it’s a pretty simple process. Unfortunately this fantastic feature is hidden away in a sub-sub-menu in the app. I’ve been using Keep for years but never even knew it existed. Now that you know about it though you can look like a champ at work.

Just imagine that there’s a pile of text on a whiteboard at work after a meeting. You take a quick snap while everyone one is still chit-chatting as they leave. Before they’ve gotten back to their respective desks you’ve emailed through a full copy of the meeting info.


Just one more way the Google Skynet is helping you get on top of things at work.
