Is it possible to "OCR" text from an image using Xojo/


I would like to “OCR” text from a picture file, .jpg, .png, etc, using Xojo, if that is possible how can I implement it?



Have you checked MBS Xojo Plugins?
Especially the OCR related classes?

No, I haven’t but I will check kit out.
Was looking for a non-commercial solution though.

you can of course integrate with Amazon or Google web services.

I’ve successfully used Tesseract via a shell.

I use both Google and AWS Artificial Intelligence services… and have Xojo classes that will do all the work for you… If you are interested in the classes please contact me via PM.

But you can try the services for free on your own images and see if they work OK for you.
