Tech Tips for Tuesday
You’ve snapped a couple paragraphs out of an online source and saved it to your hard drive as a JPEG. You need the text — your students are expected to copy and paste it into their document to edit and annotate — but you don’t want to re-type it.
- Click the cog icon in the top right of Google Drive, and hover on the Upload Settings sub-menu.
- Enable “Convert text from uploaded PDF and image files”
- Use the Upload icon in Google Drive (upward-pointing arrow in the red box next to Create), and select the file from your hard drive.
- The new file in Google Drive will be a PDF containing the image and the OCRed text.
