Information made public recently reveals that Google has a method where computers can scan images and video to understand the text they contain. If this becomes a reality, it will mean that Google would have the capability to make all images and video searchable - a huge step in making more information easily available.
"Candidate text regions within images can be enhanced to improve text recognition accuracy," the patent application reads.
"Extracted image text can also be used to improve image searching. The extracted text can be stored as associated with the particular image for use in generating search results in an image search. Additionally, the extracted image text can be combined with location data and indexed to improve and enhance location-based searching. The extracted text can provide keywords for identifying particular locations and presenting images of the identified locations to a user."
