You can update to PM v26.1.1 at least, that's the Version I'm currently using (+ iMacros for FF v8.8.2, on Win10-x64), I haven't tried later Versions for PM (yet), if the FCI mentioned in your Sig is still correct... (You should hard-code it yourself in your OP when opening a Thread, I'm nearly sure I've already asked you...)

A simple Search on Google yields a lot of Results for "free online OCR Tools" that you could try yourself and among the Results is this Review of 4 online Tools.

From reading this Review, 'i2OCR' might be the most interesting one for you as it can scan from URL (meaning that from iMacros, you just need to extract the 'HREF' of your Image, bypassing the need to first download it to re-upload it to a Site), and even once scanned and converted, you get the Result online in some editable Field that you can simply extract directly from iMacros instead of having to download it in '.TXT' to reuse as a DataSource from iMacros which will tremendously speed up the Process, I would think...

Hope this helps, and post your Results/Feedback if you end up using this Tool and/or trying/testing other ones...
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
