Windows 11's Snipping Tool is getting a text recognition feature called Text Actions
Quote:Microsoft is testing a text recognition feature in Windows 11's Snipping Tool. The new option is called Text Actions.

It is basically an optical character recognition (OCR) technology. Apple's version of the feature in macOS and iOS is called Live Text. So, how does Text Actions in Snipping Tool work.

Snipping Tool can detect text in images with the Text Actions feature

Open the Snipping Tool, and capture a screenshot that has some text. Click on the Text Actions button on the toolbar, and the app will display an animation with a flashing border around the edges of the image. This is sort of an indicator that it's doing something, like a spinning cursor does.

A tooltip suggests that the feature is powered by AI. Once it has finished processing the content, the Snipping Tool will highlight all text that it detected in the image.

Use the mouse to select the text that you would like to copy, (or use the select all option) and it is sent to the clipboard. You can paste the content in a text editor or other programs of your choice.
