Modify Web image text with Project Naptha

Project Naptha is a Chrome extension that lets you select, translate, and even modify text in any Web images through state-of-the-art vision algorithms.

In what appears to be nothing short of JavaScript black magic, Project Naptha allows you to select and modify text from any Web image. Using character-recognition technology derived from several sources, such as Microsoft Research Lab and Google's Tesseract open-source OCR engine, the Project Naptha extension also enables you to remove, translate, and edit text in Web images. You simply move your cursor over text to highlight and start editing.

Project Naptha

Project Naptha will help when you want to search terms or words inside an image. You can also translate directly onto pictures -- great for maps and travel planning -- or insert your own text. The function is hidden in Translate/Reprint Text/Modify Text. Meme creation will never be the same. Download the Chrome extension, or read more about the technology from Project Naptha.
