OCR and translation overlap in TextGrabber Android

We’ve added an entirely new viewing mode. Here’s how it works:

  • While in photo mode, select an OCR language.

  • Take a snapshot of some text that you want to capture and translate (e.g., the name of a dish at a restaurant or some text on product packaging).

  • Review the OCR results, which will be superimposed on the photo.

  • The app may have its doubts about some of the words. These will be highlighted in yellow. Double-tap any yellow word that needs correction and make the necessary edits.

  • Now select a target language and click “Translate” at the bottom of the screen.

  • The translation, too, will appear over the photo, superimposed on the respective fragments of the original text. 

  • Tap “Save” if you want to create a new note from the grabbed and translated text. Notes can be edited and shared the usual way.
