    BC3 does not support comparing a plain text file to an image file that contains text. We currently support comparing two image files in the Picture Compare session type, or two text files in the Text Compare session type.

    You would need specialized OCR software to convert the picture file to text, then compare that text file to the other text file.

    If the OCR software suite you find supports a command line conversion, it could be plugged in to BC3's File Formats and used automatically when you try to compare a picture file. We have a similar example of a conversion, here:
    Beyond Compare is a multi-platform utility that combines directory compare and file compare functions in one package. Use it to manage source code, keep directories in sync, compare program output, etc.

      Dear Aaron,
      Thanks for your reply.
      But what i mean to ask is we have Image files with contents written and same has been typed in notepad file too. We need to find errors in notepad file by comparing it with Image file. Is it possible with BC?
