Encounters in Electronic Textuality Part 2

I wanted to see if I could use Google Translate on my phone to capture OCR text from an image in my book so I could read and capture quotes on mobile, instead of transcribing by keyboard (this is a normal train of thought for the somewhat lazy academic, right?) BUT then this happened (imagine these images in motion, not static) and it’s super trippy to look at the text on a page morphing and jumping around and I don’t know if I can ever trust my phone camera again.
