How to convert JPG into the Excel format with ease

OCR for Scanned JPGs


Our image converter can also take on scanned JPG images with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. This function ensures that all text and numbers are extracted, reconstructed, and placed in a brand-new Excel file. And it’s not only scanned documents we’re talking about. The tool can also process photos in JPG, taken using digital cameras or even your mobile phone.

Using Microsoft Excel, you can then simply edit, change, delete, or add manually to the output file because it is an editable format. Never again will you have to enter information from a print-out to an Excel sheet manually.

This option is only available for Pro users, but you can try it out with a 7-day free trial.
