One of the best deals on a software product I've ever used. I use it every day and have never had an issue.Jan 22, 2024
It is the best product I have found for OCR on my Mac. This works perfectly to pick up text although my pages were somewhat old and difficult to decipher. Only thing is it will mix up two column text, so I had to scan each column separately. Otherwise it worked pretty accurately.Jan 18, 2024
Great product at an affordable price! Made my Mac experience much better. Totally worth it and would definitely recommend buying it.Jan 13, 2024
TextSniper for Mac has proven to be an invaluable tool in my daily workflow. This innovative software has saved me a significant amount of time and frustration, making tasks that involve copying text from websites where traditional methods could be more effective and straightforward. One of the standout features of TextSniper is its ability to extract text from images or areas on the screen that aren't ordinarily selectable. This has been a game-changer for me, especially when dealing with web content that doesn't allow easy copying. Instead of manually retyping or transcribing, TextSniper effortlessly captures the text I need, preserving its accuracy. As a creative writer and scientist passionate about data and information, I often find myself researching and collecting data from various sources. TextSniper has streamlined this process and enabled me to focus more on my work's creative and analytical aspects rather than the mundane task of copying text. In addition, TextSniper's user-friendly interface and seamless integration with macOS make it a must-have tool for anyone, whether you're a writer, researcher, or simply someone who values efficiency in their daily tasks. In summary, TextSniper for Mac: Lifetime Subscription has been a valuable addition to my toolkit. It saves time and enhances productivity, especially when dealing with websites that restrict text copying.Dec 20, 2023
Easy to use, works well and great to cut and paste into Google translate. Should be standard part of OS!!Sep 27, 2023
Saved me from retyping URLs, passwords, filenames, from any place where you can't highlight and select text, just use the command-2 option and select the text (in any font or style) and paste the editable text into Notes or wherever you want - it's especially helpful on Zooms when you can't always save the chat, for example. Indispensable tool!Sep 7, 2023
