It is not easy to convert jpg to word doc directly from computer or without use of any software.

You need software for this purpose.

One very good software is ABBY FINE reader but I have a doubt that it would avail at free on net.

But you can use other software as well with OCR technology. OCR is Optical character Recognition converter which is free to use and scanned your image files into word doc. But you also have to take care of formatting because few words and alphabets get distorted which you can replace it easily.

In this way you would be able to get converted your image to word doc.

I think you can't convert jpg to doc.

If so then try the process.
1.Right click on the file.
2.Click on rename.
3.Give any name but after that you put the execution file name that's doc. e.g:- table.jpg to table.doc

See if your question paper contains images then sorry i don't think you can able to post image containing question. I tried but I couldn't do it.

All you have to do is, Just write there that follow the attachment below for the question paper and attach the question paper directly from the driver.

This is the only way.

Try to get an converting software for the file extension .jpg / .jpeg (what ever you have saved it so) to the .doc from the internet.

You can search the same in Google by using the search string as like "jpg to doc converter" / Jpeg to doc converter Free" etc.,

Also as said by Gautam jain above, it needs lot of formatting after you convert it to the .doc file. The same thing with the OCR (Optical Character recognition) too which also needs lot of formatting post conversion.

If you are only concerned with uploading it quickly, Scan the question papers to the .pdf (Portable document format) which would be more easier to navigate through the pages.
And do a Compress (.Zip) to reduce the size of the file to quicken the uploading.

As my knowledge goes. We cannot convert JPG file to Doc. But if you have scanned documents in pdf file format then we can convert it into the Word file format. As the file JPG contains the image of the document. If we use the special software that can pick the data from the image file but you cannot get true and complete information using any of the software. I suggest you in future you should scan your documents in pdf file format or Word file format instead of JPG file folder. Also if you want to save disk space then you can compress files using windows in-built compression technology or you can use Winzip, Winrar and other compression tools that are freely available on Internet for evaluation purpose.

Hi Jayakumar

It is not not possible to convert a .jpg file to .doc, that is a image file cannot be converted to word document.
But regarding reducing the file size, I prefer you to use photoshop, which can reduce your file size.
open your existing file in photoshop change the resulution of the file to minimum (arround 100 - 72)then save it, this will reduce the file size.
If at all you want it in .doc format, then you have to type every thing in ms-word.

So many answers with only one mentioning about OCR. Well that is the only actual solution for the problem.

I would request all others who answered, that when people visit this page from outside (through search engines/links) it would not look good if questions are spammed with wrong answers. Kindly put a thought before answering.

Regarding the question, Well as gautam mentioned, ABBY fine reader is the most popular tool around. But you can get a free one too, though it might be limited in features (eg - no batch file processing). My personal favorite tool for OCR is FreeOCR. It's very lightweight software & runs perfectly in windows XP/Vista/7. Also I have heard recently that it has also been ported to linux.

While searching, I had got help from this link :Top 5 Free OCR softwares.
