Confuence OCR Someday?


Maybe Confluence can have some type of OCR (optical character recognition) built in that will recognize text in images some day?  This is one feature I loved about OneNote because I could screen-capture error messages instead of typing them out.  This would help with finding any key words (found in images) for support purposes.

Since adopting Confluence, I have migrated my OneNote content, but the text in image has always been in the back of my mind...



Nice to know I'm not the only one!

Years ago, I wrote an add-on to make scanning docs into Confluence easier.  The original just automated the basic "human scans thing, human saves as pdf, human drags and drops it on to confluence page" process, to "human clicks button on confluence page, confluence waits for pdf from attached scanner and attaches it".  Later, one of my colleagues added an OCR version which took the content as plain OCR'd text and inserted it at the end of the page.
