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.



Battlefield V Release Date, Gameplay News, Platforms & More

Battlefield V Release Date, Gameplay News, Platforms & More
Battlefield V is official, and it's set to be the biggest Battlefield title to date. The hugely popular first-person shooter has gone from strength to strength in recent years with titles like Battlefield 1 while competitors like Call of Duty struggle to entice players back, and it looks like it'll be a similar story in 2018.

Following a May 2018 reveal, we now know much more about Battlefield V and what to expect from the upcoming shooter. Here, we outline the release date, platform availability and gameplay details, along with showcasing the latest gameplay and cinematic trailers. 

When will Battlefield V be released?
Following a May 2018 reveal, EA announced that Battlefield V is set to be released on October 19 2018 - but you'll be able to play it early if you pick up the Deluxe Edition or subscribe to EA/Origin Access. Origin subscribers will get first access on 11 October 2018, followed by those that pick up the Deluxe Edition on 16 October 2018. 

Those interested in playing early can sign up to EA Access here, or pick up Battlefield V: Deluxe Edition from Microsoft (£79.99) or Origin (£69.99). Of course, you could always wait a few more days and pick up the standard edition of Battlefield V, available for pre-order from GAME (£54.99) in the UK, and GameStop ($59.99) in the US. 

Battlefield V platforms
What about platforms? Where will prospective players be able to access the upcoming Battlefield title? As confirmed by EA at the reveal event, Battlefield V will be available to play on PS4, Xbox One and PC. There was some speculation that this could've been the first Battlefield title to come to the Nintendo Switch (especially with the recent introduction of 'cloud version' Switch games in Japan) but it sadly doesn't seem to be the case. 

EA also announced that it's working with the Nvidia team on the PC port of the game. Along with providing support for standard GeForce features, Nvidia will work alongside developers on integrating "cutting-edge technologies" and creating "the definitive PC experience".

What can I expect from Battlefield V gameplay?
Following the May 2018 reveal of Battlefield V, we now know a little more about what to expect in terms of gameplay, and boy, it's set to be a good'un. 

It'll feature a single-player campaign
With Treyarch ditching a campaign in favour of a Battle Royale in this year's Call of Duty title, many assumed that it'd be the same with Battlefield V. Thankfully, it's not the case; the War Stories campaign from Battlefield 1 resonated well with players and the company received overwhelmingly positive feedback about it, prompting them to use the same format in Battlefield V.

While details of the campaign are still scarce, the anthology-esque campaign will cover stories from soldiers around the world, from the freezing wastelands of Norway to the dry heat of North Africa and the luscious expanse of the French countryside. One story that was teased is said to follow the story of a Norwegian resistance fighter desperately trying to protect her family against the 1943 German occupation. 

There won't be a Battle Royale mode
While rumours prior to announcement seemed to confirm the inclusion of a Battle Royale mode, the reveal saw no mention of it. It's possible that it could be revealed at a later date, but we highly doubt it when considering how much else is on offer from this year's title. 

Combined Arms
Though there is no Battle Royale mode, EA did announce the addition of Combined Arms to Battlefield V. It's a brand new co-op mode, and sits somewhere between the focused, intimate single-player experience with the large scale and chaos of a multiplayer match. It allows up to four players to group up and work together to progress behind enemy lines.

You'll be given objectives, and must work together as a team to complete them - no man gets left behind, after all. 

Don't worry; Battlefield V will also feature standard multiplayer modes like Conquest, Death Match and Domination too. 

Character customisation
Character customisation has become more of a focus in online multiplayer games in recent years, as it gives a way for players to stand out and make avatars unique. This will also be the case in Battlefield V, as you'll be able to create your own company of soldiers and customise each of them, changing gender, hair, faces, war paint, clothing and more. 

Admittedly, not all customisation options are historically accurate, with cool leather jackets and modern hairstyles to choose from, but hey, it is a game at the end of the day! 

Revive me! 
Anybody that has played Battlefield's online multiplayer will know the struggles of being severely injured and waiting for a medic to come and revive you. You'll see the distance meter go down as they approach, and just as you think you're about to be saved, they take a turn and walk away. You see, despite choosing the medic class, most medics don't really care about reviving their teammates - and Battlefield devs know it. 

That's why in Battlefield V you'll be able to revive any of your squad mates, regardless of class. It'll admittedly be slower and will provide less health than if it was done by an actual Medic, but it should provide a way for anybody to help keep their team alive. 

Build your defences
Another interesting new feature coming to Battlefield V is the ability to restore destroyed buildings to help provide much-needed cover. You'll also be able to use items like sandbags, barbed wire and trenches to help fortify your position from enemy attackers. You won't be able to fully restore buildings to their former glory, but you'll be able to do enough to provide a little bit of cover when you most need it. 

Goodbye Premium Pass! 
One of the highlights of the Battlefield V reveal was the removal of the Premium Pass and the introduction of Tides of War, a new live service provided by EA. The company wanted to stop the player segmentation experienced in previous games where some players have access to content that others don't, and to do that, content and map updates will be free for all players.

Tides of War will allow players to progress with their customised Company through the battles of World War 2. It'll feature an evolving narrative with new gameplay, items and events added over time. It's also said to be split into chapters, with each chapter lasting a few months and featuring limited-time experiences and rewards including new weapons, vehicles, dog tags and more. 

Grand Operations
Grand Operations builds on the Operations game mode introduced in Battlefield 1. Grand Operations is a large event-based multiplayer experience that'll see gamers take part in missions that play out over multiple matches and (in-game) days. Each day of the campaign will take you to a different map with a different objective, and player action has much more of an impact on gameplay than with Battlefield 1.

For example, if players are tasked with destroying enemy artillery on day one, the degree of success will dictate how many resources the enemy team has available to use on day two. 

Each Grand Operation is said to be available for a limited time only, and players will be rewarded with unique items for taking part.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

There’s something of a lack of new flagship smartphones at MWC 2018 but Nokia has plenty of new devices to feast your eyes on, including a sleek handset to rival the Galaxy S9. Here’s our Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review.
You would assume that Nokia’s new flagship would be one of the biggest smartphones (in terms of importance) to be unveiled at MWC but Huawei and LG have delayed their respective 2018 devices. So it’s a case of Nokia vs Samsung vs Sony.
Although a Nokia 9 was a possibility, the firm has actually announced the Nokia 8 Sirocco which is quite a radical phone for HMD – the company with the rights to the Nokia brand. For now, this is the Nokia 9.

Following the Nokia 3310, this is the second ‘retro classic reloaded’ and although it’s been 22 years, the Nokia 8110 is back.
