Hi, I'm looking for something that can help me scan in some text from about 20 photos. I've typed a few pages on my own, but I'm already fatigued by the amount of data I've typed, and I'm making typos. Is there anything that can help me convert my 20 pictures to plain text, without paying a premium fee to do so?

 

I want to place this "text" inside Evernote for safe keeping.

You need some OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software for your scanner.  Even with that, you'll need to do quite a bit of editing.
