Here’s a great app for copying non-copyable text (PDFs, images, videos, presentations, screenshots …).

TextSniper is one of the best apps I’ve found in Apple Uncopyable copy. TextSniper, as its name suggests, allows you to copy text anywhere: photos, PDFs, screenshots, websites, videos, online presentations, scanned paper into documents or apps. In fact, the app developer created TextSniper out of frustration at not being able to copy the URL displayed in the YouTube video. The app is simple and easy to use. No special skills required.

With its OCR capabilities, you can easily ‘find and identify’ any undetectable and unedited text on your device. The OCR engine does not even require an internet connection to process the document, it works eastward. Once the app is installed, use your mouse to select the area where the text appears on the image or screen, and TextSniper will automatically recognize it and save it to your clipboard. From there you can paste it into your document or wherever you want. This is definitely a great way to digitize text that would otherwise not be digitized.

There are many ways to use it Textsniper. These include: convert various image formats (e.g., JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP ..) to text; Even if text cannot be copied like e-books or web articles; Grab a text or convert a speech into a video game, read a QR or barcode.
