During your work or study, you sometimes encounter the need to convert a non-editable picture into editable Word documents. Under such circumstances, having a file format converter becomes an urgent need.
Thankfully, the latest version of WPS has the feature of converting the image to a word document, which can read text from the image and save it as a Word document. So how can we convert an image into a Word document? In light of the fact that a majority of clients access WPS through their desktop or mobile devices, we will provide instructions for desktop and mobile users.
How to convert the image to a word document on desktop devices
Step-1: Open WPS Writer on desktop
Open WPS Writer (Word Processor) on your desktop device and create a new word document.
Step-2: Click on Insert Menu and select “Picture“
Click on “Insert” in the top menu on your word document, and select “Picture” to insert the image you want to convert.
There are two options for you after clicking the “Picture” Button. Select OCR Method on the right-hand side to efficiently convert the image to a word document.
Step-3: OCR Procedures
After selecting OCR, click on the “Add Pictures” button to insert your image. A dialog box will appear on your right with three options. You can choose “Extract text only” if you want to extract the text in the image without keeping the original text format. For those who already have WPS Office memberships, you can choose “Convert to Word” to retain the original text format when extracting the text in the image.
Steo-4: Edit your word document
Upon completion of the OCR process, the converted text will be displayed in a new window. You can edit the text if necessary and save it as a Word document on your desktop.
