from pdf or screenshot to doc

It is possible to scan any document with a phone, make a pdf, drop it on google drive, open it as a .doc document, and just wait for the engine to read it. It actually tries to read even hand-written lines and does a pretty good job of it.

It is also possible to take a screen picture of the paragraph image (on a mac: command / shift / 4), drop the resulting image on google drive, right-click on it, and choose to have it read as a .doc document. The engine works on it and gives a perfect transcription that one can then enter into a text editor.
