Automate Live Text


Does anyone know of a way to automate/simplify the Live Text feature in Monterey? Specifically, how to automatically extract the text from all the pictures inside a folder?

Thanks very much in advance!

I’m looking for the same thing. Hoping to figure out some command line way of grabbing all the Live Text text out of an image, but have not found it yet. I may fall back to using a 3rd party utility, like tesseract, see, e.g.:
software recommendation - Is screenshot to OCR possible on macOS? - Ask Different

(My use case is that I want Hazel to evaluate screenshots against a few criteria for how to file them.)
