Extract Text from Android Photos via Phone Link on Windows

After introducing Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for copying text from the photos through the Snipping Tool, Windows is not allowing Android users to do the same on their phone photos through the Phone Link app.

If you want to copy text from your photos on your phone, then there is no need to copy and paste photos into your Windows computer. Instead, you can use the Phone Link for the same purpose.

On Windows 11, when you open phone photos through the Phone Link, a text icon will appear on the photo. The text icon inhibits OCR functionality once you tap on the photo.

You can highlight and copy all or partial text from the photo. This feature is only available to some of the users right now. For the complete rollout of this feature, Windows 11 users might have to wait for some time.

A similar feature is available in the Snipping Tool of Windows 11, but the photos should be on the same system. The new feature is different from the current OCR technology.

You only need to connect your Android Phone through the Phone Link feature.
