I get a picture and would like to copy the text in the picture. But since there are a lot of text, I do not want to type. So I wish there is a tool which can recognize text in a picture. Fortunately Microsoft’s OneNote makes it easy.

To do so, copy the picture into OneNote, then right click the picture, and click “Edit Alt Text”. You will see OneNote automatically recognize the text.
