Capture text from as many photos as you wish and save and share the results.

POOR TEXT QUALITY: FotoNote uses one of the highest quality OCR and text processing technologies through OCR-IT API ( Low text quality means the original image has some issues, such as poor lighting or low contrast. We want to assist you to reach the maximum potential. Before leaving any negative feedback about text recognition, please contact [email protected] and OCR experts will be glad to assist with text quality improvements.

Unlike other apps, FotoNote performs image enhancement right on your phone to optimize OCR speed and text results. Tips for optimal results:

•Photos should be taken on a flat surface with focused, lighted, clear text.
•There should be no bend in the paper that alters the shape of the text.
•Fuzzy, blurry, speckled, or dark photos taken in low light will also negatively affect results.
•Glossy images may also cause glare which may block camera from capturing text.
•Use the crop function to remove any areas not containing text.
•Use the rotate image function if needed to make the image horizontal.

FotoNote supports over 180 recognition languages.
