JOCR is another freeware tool that helps you in copying texts from images, PDF files, and scanned documents. Earlier, we had used Gttext to copy the text from images.

JOCR is a freeware software that enables you to capture the image from the screenshot and extract the texts from captured image. It also allows you to Copy Error Codes and Messages from Dialog Boxes. It is very useful if you want to revive the protected files whose text can not be copied. It can copy text from protected Web pages, PDF files, error messages etc as it offers several capture modes.


JOCR is not an independent tool like GetWindowText which copies texts from open Window. It requires Microsoft Office 2003 or higher version. In case JCOR does not work, you have to manually install “Microsoft Office Document Imaging” (MODI) that is a part of Microsoft Office. You can find MODI under “Office Tools” of the setup file. You can download JOCR from here.

Textify is an another free app that lets you copy Error Codes & Messages from dialog boxes in Windows 10/8/7.
