How To Convert Image To Word On Android Phones

How to Convert Image to Word onAndroid PhonesLong gone are the times where the only way to digitize something written on paper was to retype it on a computer. That was a really painful and time-consuming process. 
Just imagine students with hundreds of notes and study materials trying to digitize them all. Or stay at home moms trying to digitize their recipes so they wouldn't have them laying around the kitchen in a paper form. You could also imagine the struggle of a businessman trying to digitize tons of reports or other financial documents.

Bellroy Travel Wallet review - fantastic passport-carrying leather wallet


While the Bellroy Travel Wallet isn’t really “tech” (it includes a pen, for Heaven’s sake!) it’s so cool that we are going to bestow Geek status on it.

While most of the tech we recommend for travel will be eyed with suspicion by airport security the Bellroy Travel Wallet will delight airline check-in, staff, customs, your fellow travellers and you.

The aptly named Travel Wallet has all the usual sections and slots you’d expect of a modern-day wallet, and more besides.


The first thing you notice is the leather wallet’s length. It’s 15cm long (9.4cm wide) when folded, which makes it big enough to hold not only your passport but those long boarding passes, tickets and customs cards without folding or creasing.

The passport is held in an easy-access, open pocket, so there’s no need to keep checking it’s with you at all times.


There’s even a handy little biro (with a refill) for filling in the forms or doing the crossword.


There’s a notes section for the different currencies you’ll need, and slots for at least eight cards.


When you’re flying to a destination that requires lots of visa-waiver and customs form filling it’s great to have your passport in your pocket and not in your carry-on bag that’s buried in the overhead locker.


Like the biodegradable packaging the wallet’s leather is environmentally friendly (unless you;’re a cow, that is): vegetable tanned (so no chemicals), responsibly sourced and non-toxic. After tanning the leather is dyed through as semi-aniline leathers, which Bellroy claims means they should age more gracefully than just surface painted leathers. The leather is thinner than you’ll find in most wallets, so reduces unnecessary bulk and encourages the wallet to better shape to your cards.


The Bellroy Travel Wallet costs £89, is available in four sober colours (Midnight, Cocoa, Mocha and Slate) and has a three-year warranty.

Bellroy’s great travel tips are also worth reading.
