Love this app, but am having issue with scanning documents in German. The option to switch languages doesn't appear until after I have already scanned the doc, and by that time German characters, such as: ß and ö were replaced with an English capital B and a regular o, it was too late to fix it other than to manually go through the entire document, something that took longer than to just transcribe the whole thing in the first place.

Outdated :It cannot even recognize printed letters in size 30 with perfect light and black on white paper. It's as worthy as a shoe without a sole. Edit: it has improved a lot. Due to dev reply I checked again and was positively surprised. It still needs correction but we are working with almost complete sentences now. Keep up the good work.

Edit 17/4/22 after using Text Fairy to extract text from photos sent to me, I've updated this to reinforce the 5* assessment from 2 years ago I struggled to find an equivalent to Scan to Text on my old BlackBerry Passport, so kept the 'phone going just to scan text. After 2 or 3 attempts since I migrated to Android, I finally found this. Quick and very simple!
