How to OCR my documents with Google Drive?

In the past, it was possible to OCR documents with Google Drive right from Genius Scan. Unfortunately, Google removed the ability for Genius Scan to request OCR, but you still convert scans into text by exporting your documents to Google Drive.

OCR stands for "Optical Character Recognition". It's the process that attempts to extract text from an image to create an editable document. 

To  apply OCR to a document exported from Genius Scan to Google Drive, follow the instructions from Google.
