TextSniper is a user-friendly desktop OCR application for Mac, capable of extracting and recognizing any non-searchable and non-editable text on your Mac screen. As an added feature, it can convert OCR text into speech. This makes it a highly convenient alternative to complex optical character recognition tools.

The tool is intuitive to use and simplifies the extraction of text from your images, scanned paper documents, PDFs, or even videos. No training or special skills are needed, making it perfectly suitable for Mac users at home and in business. It is easily accessible from the menu bar whenever you need it and has a straightforward user interface.

If you have ever used a built-in Mac screenshot application before, then working with TextSniper should not be a problem. Simply select any part of an image, photo, PDF document, or anything on your screen with a mouse, and the application will process and recognize any text in that selection. The text output will be saved to the clipboard, so you can paste it into your preferred macOS text editing or note-taking software. Lastly, the application's optical character recognition engine does not require an internet connection to process documents. This is an excellent OCR solution for those concerned about privacy. The application does not collect any user data.

Possible Uses:

  • Conversion of different image formats into text (JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, etc...).
  • Extraction of text from an unsearchable PDF file without having to process the entire document.
  • Reading of text from images, PDF documents, photos, Zoom meetings, or any other source.
  • Copying of text even when it's non-copyable such as in ebooks or web articles.
  • Quick extraction of emails, links, phone numbers, etc.
