    Default Graphics to text

    I had a computer problem a while back and lost a lot of files. A good chunk of them are things I wrote, short stories ect., I have most of them in printed form and I'm hoping to avoid all that retyping. Does anybody know of a cheap convertion program?

    Google docs can do OCR conversion for free:

    1. Scan your doc(s) to image files.
    2. Upload them to Google Drive (drive.google.com). Make sure to select the "Convert text from PDF and image files to Google documents" option.
    3. Open the converted document and make any necessary corrections or copy and paste to your favorite word processor.
