Very cool! This will be the buzz saw in the OCR toolbox.

Hi Marcus,

Does it work in Windows 7, I just tried it in a VM but had some issues, I will test tomorrow on my Win 10 machine.

Yes, works in all versions. Our dev environment is Windows 7 so it *definitely* works there.

Ok maybe a few issues in the slimmed down VM I use for capturing software, I will have a look / test today.

Thanks for the update, looks handy.

Tested today on Windows 7 and Windows 10, the issue I had was I was trying to capture text from the desktop, both in a VM and physical machine. Works ok in other screens and apps, but trying to capture the names of desktop icons caused it to fail with an error code.

Odd, what error did you get? I seem to be able to OCR the desktop just fine on both Win 7 and Win 10.

@Marcus,

Love it! Any idea when you will be releasing it?
