In this blog post, we are going to talk about how to convert a scanned JPG into an editable text file.

Let’s get started!

How to Turn Your JPG File into an Editable Text?

There are only two methods by which you can turn your JPG into a Document file. One is to manually type every word into a text file by hand. This could take a lot of time and effort as you have to do everything on your own and don’t leave a chance of missing something.

Conversely, the easiest, quickest, and reliable way to turn your JPG image into an editable text is by using an online OCR tool. For this, an online tool like a JPG to Text Converter could be an ideal choice that can even turn a distorted JPG image into a text file.

Here, we are going to explain each method with a step-by-step guide.

Manual Process to Turn a JPG to Text

However, the steps of turning a JPG image into text are simple (but time-consuming). But here are some steps that could help you a lot.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  • If you are using a PC or laptop, then what you have to do is, open the image and a DOC separately.
  • Then, to make the conversion process easier, open both files side-by-side using your laptop or PC feature.
  • To do this, like splitting the files, you can use the “Windows” key and “Left/Right” arrows. This works in both Windows 10 and 11.
    press windows key and left right arrows
  • On one side, you can open the JPG image, and on the other side, you can open the Text file on which you can start writing what’s inside the image.
