It would be an extremely strong functionality to have. Enable Snagit to automatically extract text from images and use this for e.g. searching and text related to the captures images. One Note could be an inspiration for the Snagit developers.

I duplicated this by mistake and just found it now. I think the commentators are missing the point entirely. What the op wants is to make the image library run a grab-text on all images, add that as metadata to the images and then the search box (it even already exists!) could actually find content in a screen shot. It seems a no-brainer if you ask me.
