@PackElend by the way Password-Protected notes is also sounds interesting! I have experience using crypto-js library. I have used it to generate encrypted keys for establishing secure connections between client and server in Keymote project. Guide me how do I get started

Hopefully you will get involved in this project. What I mostly like to see into an OCR integration into Joplin is support for image to recognised text correction synchronisation! I mean, to have a highlight into the image the place of text that represents the text that is under the cursor in edit mode like in Abby FineReder.


The point is we need to familiarize with you assess your coding and communication skills.
That can in parallel with you proposal, what can submitted as described

Thanks @zohozer for detailed information on OCR Project. I understood what you are trying to explain. I’ll look into it and will try to implement in the OCR project.

Thank you for your prompt response…I have already started working on one issue which I believe I can solve it and will submit PR once I done.

I have attached demo here:

Now I’m working on implementing more features of OCR as mentioned by @zohozer and GH Issue ( (

P.S I’m submitting my first draft proposal for this project today
