Convert Handwriting to Text in OneNote: Overview

            The ability to convert handwriting to text in OneNote is one of the programs’ great features. When you convert handwriting into text in OneNote, the text looks as though it had been typed on a keyboard. This feature helps users who take handwritten notes make their notes easier to read.

            For example, assume you took handwritten notes on your tablet during a meeting. Also assume you then wanted to convert those notes to typed meeting minutes to distribute to attendees afterward. In this case, using the “Ink to Text” feature of OneNote will help to make your handwritten notes easier to read. While not a perfect technology, it can be useful to try to convert your handwritten notes. Often, it saves you time by not having to re-type notes you have already taken.
