Texto - A simple OCR web app (extracts text found in images)

Hey guys, I built a simple web app using Elixir and Phoenix to extract text found in images. Feedback is welcomed and appreciated, check it out https://image-to-text.edgardev.com.


You could just say OCR app :smiley:

This is very cool.

Good idea, thanks!

That’s awesome - just tried it :023:

awesome, I tried some images, looks like that’s capable to find regular text in simple image.
Will be awesome if some one of these libraries could find captchas… :smile:

Important to mention: I saw the source code, this web app use microsoft cognitive API

I think your README should include a prominent security warning alerting potential users that this app is posting their images to a third-party endpoint, which has both security and IP implications.
