Firefox is testing text recognition for images

Firefox browser users will soon be able to read text directly from images. A feature that current Apple systems come from the factory – and Microsoft will soon be offering something like this with the PowerToys. Firefox users in its Nightly version have the option to disable text recognition in the settings under “Nightly Experiments”. Our reader Niklas gave us this clue.

Once done, you can right-click on an image on a website and enable text recognition via the context menu. The extracted text is then copied to the clipboard and can be processed from there.

I myself find the function really very useful, as long as it’s not about formatted arrays or something like that, it still makes sense for further post-processing.
