  • Is there any way to extract text from picture pasted in word?

    For eg: If I paste Sample Text as text in word, is there any way to validate this text using VBScript?

    Also, I want to ask the same question for powerPoint but I did not find any forum for Powerpoint here.

    <<Is there any way to extract text from picture pasted in word?>>

    That depends on what kind of "picture" we're talking about. If it's a "Shape" created using the Office drawing tools, then it should be possible as long as it is still a "Shape" and hasn't been converted to something else.

    I don't understand what you're asking here. If you paste something as text, then it's text. And I don't know what you mean by "validate".

    Technically, PowerPoint is covered in the General Office Developement forum. But if you want to discuss something with PowerPoint specialists, then you're better off asking in "Communities", because that's where all the PowerPoint specialists congregate (including the developers):
