Python-tesseract is an optical character recognition (OCR) tool for python. That is, it will recognize and “read” the text embedded in images.
Python-tesseract is a wrapper for Google’s Tesseract-OCR Engine. It is also useful as a stand-alone invocation script to tesseract, as it can read all image types supported by the Pillow and Leptonica imaging libraries, including jpeg, png, gif, BMP, tiff, and others. Additionally, if used as a script, Python-tesseract will print the recognized text instead of writing it to a file.

Setting Things Up
When it comes to setting up Python libraries to use, it’s usually a one-step process. With PyTesseract, however, we will need to do two things:

  1. Install the Python Library
  2. Install the Tesseract application

In this video, We are going to show how to extract an image by using python. This program will extract text from the selected image.
