Today, I was trying to capture some logs from QEMU. But unfortunately, i couldnt start logging qemu easily.
So Thought to capture the image and take up OCR to get text. Ubuntu has gocr, which i could use.
sudo apt-get install gocr
Using GOCR :
gocr -h for list of usage
Simply to extract text from a screenshot, i followed this.
raj@14:19:31:$ gocr -i ~/Pictures/Screenshot\ from\ 2012-11-25\ 14\:18\:40.png -o out.txt
Output is pretty acceptable, even though its not accurate.
