    I think you are asking that JotForm has optical character recognition function or not. Unfortunately, we don't have this feature yet. 

    However, I'm going to open a feature request for your request. Please note that we can not promise you that this feature will be implemented or not and when it will be released if it is possible to implement such a feature.  You of course will be notified if this feature becomes real. 

    On the other hand, if you provide us some more detail about your request, we will try to find another way to achieve what you would like to do.
