Using Toolbox Pro to create a shortcut to grab text from photo with OCR

Hey friends, thought I’d share this tutorial I put together of how I used Shortcuts and Toolbox Pro so that I can OCR text from a photo taken from the camera app.

This has been really nice since I like recording my notes in Notes instead of writing in physical books.

I’ve already improved the shortcut, so I’ll likely create another post this week detailing how I’ve add a step at the beginning that also lets you select a photo from your camera roll in case you want to grab text from an existing photo or screenshot.

If you see any room for improvement, please comment :slight_smile:
