Rob’s OCR

Conduct OCR on any photo or file


This Shortcut uses optical character recognition to recognize text from the camera, a photo, iCloud or Dropbox. The results are displayed on your screen, copied to your clipboard, and optionally, saved to a file.

Rob’s OCR requires a free personal api key from OCR.Space. The api key will be saved in a small file in your iCloud.

You will be prompted to enter your api key the first time the Shortcut runs. If you do not have one, the Shortcut will guide you through the process to get the api key.
