copy text from a diagram or picture

The method here can be used to convert a pdf to Word. What if you have a diagram or picture or screen dump or paste from the snipping tool which you want to copy the text from and use in Word? This can be done in OneNote. Copy the picture to a page in OneNote and right-click on it. Select the Copy Text from Picture option:

Paste into your Word document with Ctrl+V – this will give a box with all the words in the picture in Word. They will not be very accurate but it’s a better starting point than typing from scratch.
