Softonic review

A free tool for picking words from images

Cognitive OpenOCR is one of many Optical Character Recognition programs on the Internet. Cognitive OpenOCR is free, and it was built from mashing together the databases from other openware OCR programs, and from databases built by user input and feedback. It does have bloatware options when installing, but they are avoidable, and the program works with 23 different languages.


  • Converts in batches if required
  • Can recognize characters from 23 different languages
  • Resultant content is easily exportable
  • Database is built-in and doesn't require an Internet connection


  • Converts poorly with less contrasted images
  • Cannot read logos or shaded letters
  • Formatting is unpredictable
  • Resultant text almost always needs editing
