In recent years, the popularity of online learning has soared exponentially, with the most recent surge driven by the pandemic. It has seamlessly integrated into modern education for compelling reasons. Online learning offers unparalleled accessibility, flexibility, and the ability to learn at one’s own pace, catering to a diverse array of learners. Importantly, it extends beyond traditional students to encompass the corporate world, where around 80% of companies now provide online learning and training solutions for employees and new team members. Furthermore, many individuals participate in massive open online courses (MOOCs) to acquire new knowledge and skills. However, as education evolves into the digital realm, it presents new challenges, including the management of vast amounts of visual content and the efficient extraction of information from diverse digital resources. In this landscape, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software emerges as a revolutionary force, transforming the eLearning experience and rendering it more manageable than ever before.
OCR is a technology that converts different types of documents, including scanned paper documents, PDF files, or images, into editable and searchable data. OCR software recognizes and extracts text characters from these documents, making the text editable and searchable. Snip & Float is an incredible tool that gives learners the ability to instantly capture accurate and high-quality screenshots and convert them into editable and searchable text. In the realm of eLearning, where visual content like textbooks, research papers, and lecture slides are commonplace, this software plays a pivotal role in enhancing the learning experience.
Snip & Float is the quintessential tool for online and eLearning for several compelling reasons. This software empowers users to effortlessly capture screenshots of anything visible on their screen. These screenshots not only stay easily accessible but also float above all other open applications, eliminating the hassle of toggling between screens or finding that screenshots spontaneously disappear behind other applications open on screen.
The software introduces a distinctive feature; a snippet holder, enabling users to effortlessly organize, select, and preview snippets. Additionally, it offers the capability to accurately extract text from snipped images, ready for editing, pasting into other applications, or exporting to various formats. This simplicity masks its incredible effectiveness, making it a truly transformative breakthrough in the realm of eLearning.
Digitizing Various Formats and Content
Learning materials come in various formats online, including digital textbooks, articles, lecture slides, PDFs, images, and videos. As mentioned, Snip & Float screenshot software allows learners and educators to take instant and accurate screenshots of whatever is visible on screen, and extract text quickly and easily. Learners can paste text to editing/email applications and make all extracted text editable and fully searchable. It’s also a fast and effective way to digitize, analyze, and manage expansive volumes of information.
Searchable Resources and Efficient Information Retrieval
Once text is extracted and pasted to a word editing application, learning content becomes fully searchable. Learners can quickly pinpoint specific information relating to relevant course materials – incredibly helpful for research and study purposes.
Up to Date Content and Resources
Stay up to date with the latest learning content and resources from the web – screenshot and extract titles and text as you need it, paste to other applications, or float and effortlessly move snippets around on your screen for easy viewing and reference.

Preview them and store in a convenient snippet holder for ease of use, keeping your screen organized and manageable.
Efficient Notetaking with screenshots
Learners can capture screenshots during online lectures or while reading online course materials. Snip & Float software can then convert text in images to editable text, facilitating notetaking, summarization, and additional notes and comments.
Compare Text or Images
Compare and contrast various data and text versions of content to analyze differences. This is useful for assessing the differences between various iterations of written text or images or when comparing two or more sections of text or images. Snip & Float lets you do this quickly and easily on your screen.
Study on the Go
Screenshot and extract – wherever you can take a laptop, the technology can step in, anytime, anywhere so that eLearning can forge ahead irrespective of a learner’s location.
