Users often capture and share app screenshots over communication channels such as instant messaging and email. Although a convenient mechanism for the sender, sharing screenshots can be inconvenient for recipients. This is because screenshot information is typically not readily visible in its low-resolution or small version, so that the recipient needs to tap the screen to expand it. Even when expanded, the information in the screenshot is not actionable, e.g., it is not in text format, nor can it be easily copy-pasted. This disclosure describes techniques that automatically extract and display information from screenshots such that relevant information is available to and actionable by a user that receives screenshots.
