Unlocking the hidden Samsung Keyboard Extract Text feature in One UI 5.1



Samsung Keyboard update

Have you ever found yourself needing to copy text from an image, but struggled to do so without having to type it out manually? You might be surprised to know that your Galaxy phone’s keyboard has a secret feature that could solve this problem. Say hello to the Extract Text feature, available on Samsung Keyboard with One UI 5.1.

At first glance, the One UI’s keyboard app may seem like any other standard keyboard. However, the Samsung Keyboard is equipped with some incredibly useful features that you may not be aware of such as the Extract Text, thanks to the One UI 5.1 for this game-changing addition.

So, how does it work?

First, make sure you have the latest version of Samsung Keyboard and One UI 5.1 installed on your device. Once that’s done, open the image containing the text you want to extract. You can do this by taking a photo of the text or opening an image file that contains the text.

Next, open the Samsung Keyboard and tap on the “Pen” icon to access the editing options. You’ll see several options, but the one you’re looking for is the Extract Text feature, represented by an icon of a text box with a dotted line around it.

Tap on this, and you’ll be prompted to select the area of the image containing the text you want to extract. Use your finger to drag over the text, and then release. Voila! The extracted text will appear in a pop-up window. What makes the Extract Text feature so awesome is its ability to save you time and hassle.

Imagine needing to extract a phone number or email address from a flyer or brochure. With this feature, you can easily copy and paste the text without having to type it out manually, which can be especially helpful when you’re on the go.

It’s worth noting that the feature isn’t perfect and may not work well with the blurry or distorted text. However, it’s still a handy tool to have at your disposal.

In conclusion, the Extract Text feature is a hidden gem that can make your life easier. It’s a perfect example of how Samsung’s innovative technology can help streamline your daily tasks. So the next time you’re struggling to copy text from an image, remember to give this feature a try!
