Copy, paste and translate text from any image, video or PDF.

Do you need to extract text from images, videos or PDF? If yes, then the Copyfish free OCR software is for you.

Common reasons to extract text from images are to google it, store it, email it or translate it. Until now, your only option was to retype the text. Copyfish is soooo much faster and more fun.

“Images” come in many forms: photographs, charts, diagrams, screenshots, PDF documents, comics, error messages, memes, Flash – and Youtube movies.

You can verify the results in one glance with the extracted text overlay.

Do you need to switch between OCR languages often? You can define "Quick Switch" buttons for up to three languages on the settings page.

Text inside images, in tricky Javascript/AJAX or, especially, in movie subtitles on Youtube or Youku is unreachable for them. But not for Copyfish.

Mark the area of the subtitle once and then use the "Do OCR" button to grab the latest text from the movie screen.

For developers: Copyfish is published under the GPL open-source license. As OCR software, it uses the free OCR API from .
