Using OCR on Images on the Web

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

For most digital OCR purposes, I simply use the OCR add-on for NVDA.
However, whilst coming across graphics and images on the web, which
purely contain neat plain text, I am unable to utilize the OCR add-on.
What I mean by this is that pressing NVDA+R and then using object
review to review the scanning results on Firefox yields absolutely
nothing for that image. I was wondering if there are alternative
strategies to employ to perform OCR on images on the Internet viewed
using browsers like Firefox to extract and access the text.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or inputs on this matter.

Thanks.
