Pretty nifty, eh?

The app is called “Image to Text”, and it’s put out by the nice people at Ricoh, who make printers and such, so it makes sense that they know what they are doing.

Now, of course, the image is getting uploaded to their server, and emailed back to you OCRed, so you may want to be sure you don’t upload anything you wouldn’t want to be traced back to you, just in case.
