= Important Notes =
Garbage in, garbage out - make sure text is sharp and large enough for recognition.
**Make sure text is upright (horizontally aligned to the app)** Beware of camera rotation!
Handwritten text will not work.
Text on top of unclean background (images or borders/lines in excel sheet) will not work.
PDF source is not supported.
OCR for Gujarati, Persian and Punjabi is experimental and the result is very bad. You have been warned.
**Please read the in-app Help section for tips to improve OCR accuracy before leaving a bad review :) **
