Sometimes i need to OCR images that I stumble upon on some webpages. I would like to know if there are any plugins for Firefox and Chrome that would allow me to upload desired image for processing on their servers, recognize it and send me back the result.

If you upload a pdf file to Google Drive, it will automatically make it text searchable, and also give you the options in the upload box to convert it to a google word (editable) file.

    How does this answer the OP's question? He's looking for plugins for Firefox or Chrome. – slm Apr 2 '13 at 1:20

    And he says “images,” which typically refers to JPEGs, GIFs, PNGs, etc. – Scott Apr 2 '13 at 3:13
