Screen Clipping with OCR | Super fast and accurate for Windows 7,8,10

The other day Jackie and I were wrapping up a podcast and he mentioned something about using “stream” instead of a file.   I mentioned that I’d adapted my OCR script to use the built-in Windows 10 OCR (instead of relying on Tesseract) but I was unable to change my script to use a variable instead of requiring a saved file.  Thankfully Jackie had actually played with this so we started to update my script.   About 30 seconds in, I suggested we record the session and I’m glad I did as there was some advanced stuff we covered!  We ended up turning it into our 55th Podcast.
