OCR in Google Docs

I hadn’t previously realized it, but Google Docs can take PDF and image files and turn them into searchable text. It seems to work well with printed text. It would definitely dramatically speed up the process of transcribing, compared to typing in text manually.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
