Image to text technology is popular among users for the pressing need to digitize all the information. There are plenty of tools available online for this purpose but not all tools are well-developed and professional.

So, today I’m here with two most popular image to text converters i.e. imagestotext.io and nanonets.com’s image to text converter

I will compare them based on working, features, and pricing.

So, without further delay let’s begin our competition!

What Does Image to Text Converter Do?

An image to text converter is used to extract text from image/s. Sometimes users have images of printed or handwritten text that needs to be digitized. These tools use OCR technology to scan the images and convert image to text online. These tools use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to extract text from image/s online. Both of our tools possess AI technology that assists OCR with quick and accurate text extraction.

How Do Imagestotext.io and Nanonets.com’s Image to Text Converter Work?

Both tools under study are powered by AI technology but have a few differences in their working, so we will discuss the steps of using them one by one.

The following are the steps to use Imagestotext.io:

  1. Open the Imagestotext.io, and the picture to text converter will appear on the screen.

Both tools are simple to use but imagestotext.io provides more options for uploading and also allows users to extract multiple images at a time. While nanonets.com only processes one image at a time and provides only a browsing option for uploading.

What are the Features of these Two OCR Tools?

Now that you know how to use both photo to text converters online to copy text from images, it’s time to compare them through various features.

1.  Multilingual Extraction:

I have checked both tools to copy text from image in multiple languages. Imagestotext.io passed this test with distinction, I tested it using various languages and it extracted text from images in a wide variety of languages without encountering any difficulty. One example is provided below:

Nanonets.com picture to text converter can’t extract text from languages other than English, I tested it using Arabic, French, and Korean, three completely different languages.

2.  Handwritten Text Extraction:

Only AI OCR models can convert image to text with handwritten text in them. When imagestotext.io was tested using a handwritten text image, it immediately extracted text from the image with accuracy.

On the other hand, when I tried extracting handwritten text using nanonets.com, it didn’t convert image to text. This is another inability of nanonets.com.

3.  Multiple Image Extraction:

A good picture to text converter can extract text from multiple images at a time. When imagestotext.io was tested by uploading various images it effectively and accurately converted images to text.

Nanonet’s picture to text converter allows the extraction of multiple images at a time but only in the paid version. So, it is still a no for any users.

4.  Blurry Text Extraction:

I often have blurry images that need to be digitized. These blurry images can be read by the human eye but when it comes to OCR they often fail. So, I tested both of our tools using blurry images.

Imagestotext.io effectively extracted text from the blurry image, here are the results:

Nanonets.com’s photo to text converter online on the other hand failed to extract text from blurry images.

5.  Uploading Options:

I have briefly discussed it above while discussing the working of both tools but let’s discuss this point in detail.

Imagestotext.io provides 3 uploading images options:

  • Drag and Drop the images in the dialogue box.
  • Copy the image and paste it into the dialogue box.
  • Browse the computer and select the image.

Nanonets.com’s photo to text converter online only provides browsing images from a computer option which bound the users.

6.  Simple Interface:

Both tools have simple interfaces and are super user-friendly, you don’t have to go through tough procedures to convert image to text.

7.  Anonymity:

Users often prefer using tools anonymously. Imagestotext.io can be used anonymously without needing to create an account. While nanonets.com’s picture to text converter can be used anonymously for couple of times before it asks you to make an account.

After a comparison of features, imagestotext.io surely gets the upper hand over nanonets.com.

Pricing of Imagestotext.io & Nanonets.com’s Image to Text Converter:

Talking about the pricing of these two tools, Imagestotext.io is a free picture to text converter, you can use it as many times as you like without having an account or buying a subscription.

On the other hand, nanonets.com’s image to text converter can be used a couple of times for free before it asks you to make an account, it is also free but you must have an account online.

Conclusion:

After comparing both AI OCR models by comparing working and features, imagestotext.io evidently got the upper hand. It is much easier to use, has more functions and features and it is completely free and can be used anonymously.

If you ask me to suggest you one from both I will surely go for imagestotext.io.
