Scan to Text Converts Pictures to Text Using Your BlackBerry 10 Camera

Jane let me know about Scan to Text by Yuri Salnikov for the BlackBerry Q10 and Z10. It allows you to use your BlackBerry 10 camera to OCR (recognize text in pictures and convert) on the go. It is not foolproof and obviously this is hit and miss but it works decently well most of the time. Best of all it supports multiple languages including Bulgarian, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Tagalog, and Turkish. I am also impressed that all processing is done on your BlackBerry 10 device without a server connection.

I would highly recommend checking out the free trial first but you can pick up the full version of Scan to Text for $2.99 in BlackBerry World.
