What does OCR stand for? OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition, which refers to a computer program which is able to recognise images of alphabetic characters and convert them to an editable text form. You can take a screenshot of your iPhone screen by pressing and holding the ‘Home’ button on the front of your telephone, followed by the on/off button on the top. This allows you to save shots of web pages, maps and Google searches for Skootching. Converted files are saved in a folder within the app; you can even annotate and share images on Facebook, keeping your personal or corporate page up to date.
