Can you add Japanese character support for Snagit OCR?

Hello, 

I like the idea of Snagit OCR.

However, I noticed for now it seems to only work with easily finding English characters.

Is it possible to make it so it can can capture Japanese characters? (Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji)

It would be helpful for me who would like to grab Japanese Kanji I don't know from pictures and put them into a dictionary to figure out the meaning.

I otherwise love all the features of Snagit and have been using it for 3-4 years now.

Thanks!

I suspect TS licenses their OCR s/w from a 3rd party? 

Would: https://easyscreenocr.com/easyscreenocr-japanese-ocr-software-for-win-and-mac/
work for now?

I'd be interested to know how accurate it is?
