Vizion is an easy-to-use desktop Mac OCR app that can extract and recognize any non-searchable and non-editable text on your Mac's screen. It is a super convenient alternative to complicated optical character recognition tools.

Capture text from images

Select with a mouse any part of an image, photo, PDF document, or anything on your screen, and the app will recognize any text within this selection. The text will be saved into the clipboard, so you could paste it into your favorite note-taking software.
