Google Doc Image to Text

If you've ever received a scanned document that you needed to re-type, Google Docs may save you some time.  With your image uploaded to Google Drive, right click on the file and select "Open with" then "Google Docs".  Google Docs will do its best to convert the image to the written word. Depending on the quality of the image, the results can be quite good, although rarely 100% accurate, as shown below, where an apostrophe was missed. But it's usually better than starting from scratch.
